Christ Church Cathedral

Mon-Fri 9am-5pm
George St, Nassau

The Basics

Spend some time in the uplighting ambiance of this charming cathedral. At the back of the sanctuary, look for the baptismal font with a hallmark left of a tiny church mouse carved into the wood, left behind by its British carpenter. Don’t miss the fascinating wall plaques illustrating the trials and tribulations Nassau citizens have endured over the years. Outside, enjoy the 400-year-old grounds and the Garden of Remembrance, a quiet, contemplative place to escape the noise of the city.

The church is a popular stop on walking tours, even the more food-focused excursions, during which you sample conch fritters, peas ‘n rice, guava duff, and rum cocktails. City scavenger hunts are an entertaining way to discover Nassau’s best-loved spots, while absorbing the city’s art, culture and history. Or, rent a bus for the day and set your own itinerary.

Worth it, and then some!
This excursion was perfect! Our tour guide was extremely patient, friendly, and informative. We were shown not only to hot tourist spots but the hidden island gems as well. He went above and beyond to provide us with a memory we’ll remember forever.

Pirate Culture To investigate a different kind of religious fever, walk over to the Pirates of Nassau, a fun interactive museum dedicated to New World’s Golden Age of Piracy, which lasted from 1690 to 1720. Board a pirate frigate named Revenge and learn about the most notorious pirates to land on the shores of Nassau. Young kids will especially appreciate the visit.
