The harbour town of Hamilton is an elegant city of old world charm and a unique character. A strong British influence is present in Hamilton where high tea is still served in some of the area’s guesthouses. Fine examples of colonial architecture such as the Sessions House and cathedral, are balanced by the bustling modern Front Street. This area of countless shops, restaurants and pubs comes alive when cruise ships arrive at the ferry terminal.
There is plenty to see and do in Hamilton. Wander the historic streets, shop for souvenirs in the quaint shops, or visit the many galleries and local museums. Enjoy the island's marine life from a leisurely glass-bottomed boat or dive in the clear waters for an even closer view. There is a variety of water and land sports available and golf can be arranged at any of Bermuda's excellent golf courses. For those looking for a quieter area to relax, Pitts Bay is tucked quietly away in a peaceful corner of the harbour.
From Hamilton water transfers and excursions are available to explore other areas of the island. Visit the large inland sea at Harrington Sound where the calm waters are perfect for sailing. Take a simulated dive exploring reef wrecks and marine life at the nearby Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute or make your way to Fort Hamilton for a panoramic view of Hamilton Harbour. Absorb the beautiful scenery, stunning beaches and classic charms that are waiting to delight you on the island of Bermuda.
