Reviews about Fort Charlotte


Reviewed on 10 Dec 2016

Charlotte Fort, built in 1787 and completed in 1819, is the largest fortress in the Bahamas, on Chippenham Road, West Bay Street. It used to be free, but now it's starting to charge. Fortunately, it only charges $1.08 per person. There's a commentator at the door to show you around, but we can't understand it anyway. The commentator accompanies you with a stiff tipping and refuses. Charlotte Castle, built by Governor Lord Dunmore, was a colony-era British military stronghold against piracy invasion and held the Western Harbour entrance under its command. The castle is equipped with 42 cannons, the old ones on display, whose muzzle still points to the port. The Castle consists of three fortifications, with a moat outside, surrounded by a suspension bridge, underground caverns, passages and vaults. There are many tourist minibuses parked at the gate of the castle. They are all passengers coming from cruise ships. Looking at the cruise terminal, there are four big cruise ships parked there. The vendors near the parking lot do better business than the castle. Maybe everyone thinks the castle is not worth seeing.
