About Queen's Staircase, Nassau
The Queen’s Staircase leads to the Fort Fincastle and was carved out from a single limestone rock by slaves in the late 18th century. The stone that was carved out was used to construct the fort itself. The 65 step staircase , even though only a small pit-stop while sightseeing around the city, is one of the underrated yet beautiful sights in Nassau and is named after Queen Victoria.
What truly is special about this single rock staircase is the sheer history, the timeless construction and the view that surrounds the place. Come here to take a selfie or to simply sit on the steps while you take a breather from the walk to the fort.

Queen's Staircase, Nassau Reviews
Really cool historical place in a cool jungle setting. Great for pictures. There are locals that hang out there waiting to give you a speech about the place. Beware, they will just start talking so if you don’t want to pay for it just keep on walking. Our “guide” talked super fast and was so monotonous that I barely understood him. Cool place though!
Intimate, impressive, and with palpable history. Supposedly, according to the gentleman that was offering information at the entrance, this is where the Bahamian people became the Bahamian people from under Queen Victoria. There are 66 steps to the top. If nothing else, it's an amazing photo opportunity.
Very beautiful place. Make sure you go there any time your in Nassau. Right next to the old fort and the old water tower. Great views of the cruise terminal and the island
I've had the pleasure of going a couple times but last week, I took my children to experience this beautiful piece of history on the island. I love it. And they loved it.
My wife and I loved visiting the Queen's Staircase. The feeling you get when you see the marks on the walls and think of the work the slaves had to go through to carve out that large passage and stairs is quite sobering. Everyone should experience this place!
