Queen's Staircase

Things to do in 

A number of "official" guides operate here and will deliver history in exchange for a token gesture of cash. It is your decision whether this is valuable or not


One of the more well known local landmarks in Nassau, the Queen's Staircase is also known as the 66 Steps. The origins of this second name are a bit contentious, it is said that the reign of Queen Victoria lasted some 64 years and was honoured locally by renaming the 66 existing steps.

The site itself was carved right through the limestone shield covering the approach to Fort Fincastle, interestingly, the last step is now paved over, leaving only 65 steps!

Getting there

By land

The site is perhaps better accessed by vehicle when approaching from the top of the staircase, from the water tower or Fort Fincastle. Any approach on foot is convenient, with a short walk up Elizabeth Ave, passing the Princess Margaret Hospital.

By sea

By cruise from the Nassau Cruise Terminals, of course!
