Climbing the Queen’s Staircase in Nassau

No reviews, be the first!

It might seem to be something of an oddity or perhaps a misnomer to say that one of the main tourist attractions in Nassau is a staircase. I mean, after all, aren’t we on vacation to relax? Be that as it may, the truth of the matter is that the number one tourist attraction in Nassau (unless you count the beach) is indeed a staircase – the Queen’s Staircase, to be exact.

So if you’re going to see a staircase on your trip it has to be impressive. So it is fitting, then that this staircase is indeed a royal staircase.

Built around 1794, the limestone staircase is a 102-foot vertical climb with exactly 65 steps – one for each year of Queen Victoria’s rule.
