Top 9 Things to do in Hamilton, Bermuda

November 1, 2017 Veronika Gaddis

Bermuda’s capital hosts hordes of cruise visitors in its harbor area, where two-story pastel buildings line the seafront. On certain summer nights, waterfront streets are closed to traffic and vendors and entertainers take their place for boisterous Harbour Nights parties. Stock up on Bacardi at the rum giant’s HQ or explore the mysteries of the sea at Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute. Hamilton presents some excellent golfing and shopping opportunities and is easy to explore on foot.

Sea Express Ferry Service, Bermuda

We used the ferry twice! Once to go from Hamilton to the Dockyard (Blue line) and the other to go from Waterville to Hamilton (red line). It was convenient, inexpensive and absolutely beautiful!

Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity (Bermuda Cathedral)

The mother Anglican church in Bermuda, known not only for its religious, historical, and social importance, but also for its beautiful architecture.

Reviewed By Michael B - Salem, VA

My wife (an Episcopal priest) and I enjoyed seeing this lovely church building with its beautiful stained glass windows, carved pulpit, and unusual reredos of saints, including two women, the BVM and St Anne. It is worth a visit. We would have loved to have been able to attend a Eucharist had the timing of our visit to Bermuda allowed.

Admiralty House Park

Reviewed By BlueSkiesHappyDays - Newmarket, Canada

Someone recommended that we visit Admiralty House Park, but we were not prepared for the visit. It is a beautiful park where people rock jump and swim at the beach. There are two porta potties, but no other facilities. If I was visiting again, I would bring a blanket, cooler, snacks ... and make a day of it. It seemed to be a very popular with the youth that live in Bermuda.

Bermuda Aquarium, Natural History Museum & Zoo

Seals, turtles, fish, monkeys, birds, and the first living coral reef exhibit in the world: this complex offers a fairly complete survey of the natural wonders found in the Caribbean.

Reviewed By Bayinna P - Newark, New Jersey

My family and I visited the Bermuda Aquarium on a whim just to get off the resort and see what Bermuda had to offer. The Aquarium was easy to get to by bus and very inexpensive. Personally I’m not much of an animal lover. So if you have a fear of animals roaming free. This place isn’t for you. They had monkeys, peacocks, and turtles just walking around outside of the enclosures. The kids loved it! It’s not very big so you’ll get through it fairly quick. For a family of 5 we paid less than 50 dollars and had a great day off the resort.

Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute

Experience the wonders of the ocean without getting wet! Interactive exhibits for both young and old including The America's Cup exhibit, our new simulated dive into the Bermuda Triangle, our 'Living with the Ocean' exhibit which examines the human impact on the marine environment, one of the largest private shell collections in the world, the famous Teddy Tucker Shipwreck Gallery and so much more!

Reviewed By CapeCodDiamonds - Barnstable, Massachusetts

A visit to BUEI is exciting, informative, and entertaining. The center brings the natural world and our role in preserving its beauty to life in an engaging way. There are beautiful shell exhibits, a lovely gift shop and restaurant, and many fun, interactive displays. It was my first time using virtual reality glasses. It was exciting to feel I was aboard an America's Cup racing yacht! Although I'm almost 60, I felt like a little kid. The virtual shark tank is fun, not scary. There are images of sharks circling, but not in a menacing way that would scare children. The staff was courteous and well-informed. If you plan to dine, good to remember that the restaurant closes between 2 and 5. We missed the opportunity to eat there due to this.

Front Street

Upscale shopping district, lined with posh department stores such as Triminghams.

Reviewed By DiggerDan14 - Emmaus, Pennsylvania

Great place for shopping both for high end and tourist stuff. Visited for the Bermuda Marathon weekend in January. Wonderful place. Very friendly and very clean. Accessible by the local busses and depot only 2 blocks away. As with all of Bermuda prices high but you can still find some bargains. Got some coffees mugs (tourist) and perfume (high end) but fun to window shop at indoor malls and on the streets.

Perot Post Office

Stop by the building where the first Bermuda stamp was printed, see some of these famous first stamps and pick up a few contemporary commemorative stamps for yourself.

Reviewed By Les L - St. Petersburg, Florida

This is an historic building that still functions as a post office with some historical artifacts for viewing. Makes an interesting quick stop.
