As part of a taxi tour we stopped here to view Queen Victoria's statue and some of the historical markers, which were very enlightening. You get an idea of British background of the Bahamas. This is worth investigating.

We saw this on a walking tour (we did by ourselves, no need to pay for a tour, just follow the walking map). You get to see Queen Anne's Monument, police station, supreme Court etc. Fun to see the buildings and the difference and similarities to your own home.

Not much to see, but the historical side is nice. They were painting the outside so we decided to just take pictures around the statue on our way to Fort Fincastle.

Not far from the dock (just down Bay St) the square does give you the colonial feel and is great for taking pictures.

The buildings which surround Parliament Square were originally built in the late 1700s and early 1800s by Loyalists who came from North Carolina to The Bahamas and therefore resemble the colonial architecture found in North Carolina. The buildings include the House of Assembly, the Senate Building and the Supreme Court of the Bahamas. The statue of Queen Victoria was erected... More

When visiting Nassau we always like to take a walk down Bay Street and go to the Parliament Square. On this trip they are celebrating the Golden jubilee of 50 years of independent rule. The square and parliament building were full of historical information and banners portraying historical figures and events of the last 50 years and those instrumental in... More
