So much history here. Great views of the harbor. Wished we had arrived when everything was open, but it was a great way to finish our time visiting the Queens Staircase!

We enjoyed the look back in time at the fort. We listened in on another tour to what the fort was all about. Very historical place.

We walked the grounds here and enjoyed hearing about the history of the place and read all of the information signs, we enjoy history though so maybe boring to others.

Take the time to go up here and walk to the top for great views of New Providence and Paradise Island. This fort has a unique compact shape and structure.

entry to the fort is $3.50 pp. This tour will take about 15 minutes. Fort was never really used and is very small. Cool cannon replicas but that's about it.

The fort is ok, the queens steps were better. Tour guide was nice. There is a market out front of this fort as well. Fort Charlotte was better.

Yes, there is a fee to get in. I recommend bringing small bills and small coins. They will give you change back but I their currency.
