The former capital of Bermuda, the Town of St. George’s will take you back nearly 400 years to 1612. Now a World Heritage Site, the town is the oldest continuously occupied settlement in the English New World. Buses run into Hamilton and beyond, and there is a ferry service into Hamilton as well. As the island is only 22 miles long, even at the sedate pace of 14 to 20 miles an hour, you can explore the entire island comfortably from your taxi, on the mopeds or by public transportation. For golfers, the Mid Ocean Golf Course or the new Tucker’s Point Resort (with some lovely dining options as well) are about 15 minutes away by taxi or bus. Ocean View in Devonshire, as well as many others further west (see website homepage for details) welcome last minute tee time inquiries as well!
Good shopping, restaurants, the waterfront, museums, churches, segway tours, beautiful beaches (Tobacco Bay, Achilles Bay, Fort St. Catherine’s Beach etc.) and the pubs and cafes are all located within walking distance. St. George’s has every convenience for the visitor combined with a beautiful harbour setting. There is a shuttle service available in St. George’s, and the main bus service is about a 5 minute walk and will take you to all points on the island. For the independent adventurer, there are several cycle liveries close by for those wanting to rent scooters or pedal bikes. Boat and land tours are available as well.
Dockyard (at the furthest western point of the island) is another splendid collection of buildings dating from the early 1800’s used by the British Navy to re-provision their ships. Now converted to museums, shops and artisans studios, a trip to Dockyard is a must- and to get there by ferry will combine the pleasures of a cruise, with stunning scenery and a fascinating glimpse into Bermuda’s colonial past.
Somers Supermart in St. George’s is a small but comprehensive little grocery store and you will be able to provide yourselves with decent meal from what they sell. For a wider choice or selection you have to head towards the centre of the island:
- The Supermart, Front Street, Hamilton (recommended as it carries Waitrose products)
- HQ for Somers Supermart
- Miles, Pitts Bay Road (Front Street West), Hamilton (for high end and expensive products)
- The Market Place – one closer to St. George’s in Shelly Bay and another in Hamilton on Church Street- probably the best prices.
- Lindo’s Supermarket, Devonshire- off Middle Road east of Hamilton- recommended.
We like Lindo’s and The Supermart but you need a taxi as both are a distance from the Hamilton bus terminal.
Alcoholic beverages can be purchased in St. George’s – All in Duke of York Street:
Somers Supermart, Burrows & Lightbourn (Chris West will help you out), Churchills.
