Bermuda Popular Destinations
Hamilton Bermuda's harbour capital is a small lively affair crammed full of Victorian architecture and some interesting museums and galleries. A hilltop fort dominates the town with shops, restaurants and pubs offering the visitor a good time.
St George This lovely town was the former capital and is the perfect place for a sightseeing trip. Evidence of British rule is all around and most of the town has stayed the same. Charming Kings Square, The Old State House and the museums are a few of the highlights.
Royal Naval Dockyard The British used this site as a base in the American civil war and later in both world wars, but it was left soon after WW2, as it was too expensive to run. It has since been renovated and now houses the Maritime Museum, cinema, craft market, unusual pub and a snorkel park.
