Government House of The Bahamas

Things to do in 
Nassau
Landmarks

Most visitors only get a glimpse of the building's rear

About

The rear side of the building features a statue of Christopher Columbus and a staircase which descends downward, along the slope of Mount Fitzwilliam. The building itself is a grand manor home, showcasing features of local Bahamian architecture alongside styles of British and American influence.

The sitting Governor actually resides here, don't expect to gain access or to walk the gardens.

Getting there

By land

The site is at the top of a small incline up Mount Fitzwilliam, at the head of Nassau's west side and near the West Hill area. Walkable, perhaps less accessible by motor vehicle unless a driver has been commissioned, there is no street parking on Duke Street.

By sea

As with other landmarks of Nassau, sea travel centres on the cruise terminals.
