Slavery to Freedom

Travel back in time

Slavery to Freedom Tour

Travel back in time and experience the unique synthesis of West Africa, the Caribbean and the Americas in the Bahamas. Observe how the Bahamas was an important port of call for slavery and learn about rich African heritage that transcended into Bahamian history. Your journey begins at Pompey Square where slaves were auctioned followed by the Pompey Museum where you will see historical artifacts of the slaves. Explore the oldest settlement in New Providence, Gambier Village, where the original inhabitants were never slaves because of the mutiny on the ship that crash landed on the shores of the western side of the island.

Next, you will see ruins of the slave homes at Clifton Heritage which was previously a Whylly and Johnston plantation. Take a look at the beautiful, relaxing ocean where monuments of enslaved women were erected to show them looking towards West Africa, their home. Finally, the picuresque views of the Fort Fincastle and Queen’s staircase will bring everything together. The Queen’s staircase was carved by former slaves in gratitude to Queen Victoria for their liberation. Therefore, the final stop is one that commemorates freedom. Bask in the refreshing sounds of the waterfall and the beautiful sights at this historical site. This tour will bring you rich and lasting memories and will show you Bahamians from a different perspective...our history! Price includes admissions to Pompey Museum and Clifton Heritage.
