Take a tour of Fort Charlotte, the largest of three forts in Nassau. Colonial governor Lord Dunmore had it constructed in 1789. Named after Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III, the fort never saw a battle. Today, you can explore the fortress walls, underground tunnels, cannons, and dungeons. Frequently, local actors dress up as characters from the time period, act out scenes, or sell handmade baskets and utensils.

Fort Charlotte Reviews
We went on a Sunday and the gates were open and it was free. Another group went on a different day and paid five per person. It is fun walking around the fort and seeing the sites more »

This was a nice historical site to see. However, no cameras are allowed inside. Tourist really want to capture everything through pictures! The views are exceptional and was a great stop. Bahamas are known for their forts once you look into the history of the place. It was well worth the stop just to say you have visited the fort and have no proof cause you have no pictures to show anyone. Cant get past a three star due to the camera rule here.
Visited there and it's a really cool historical place. Saw some old cannons lining the top, and it's interesting to note that the fort has never seen battle. I also saw a picture of a ship carved into the fort's rock wall (done by a British soldier in 1850, if I remember the year correctly). This was part of the island tour which included the Ardastra Gardens and a scenic drive through town. We saw one hotel which was featured in a James Bond movie and one house which was built in 1616 (really cool).
