Town of St George

Introducing Town of St George

No matter what direction you look in, this town exudes period charm. Some of its centuries-old buildings have been set aside as museums, but others continue to function as public meeting places, churches and shops. Even the names of the public ways - King's Square, Old Maid's Lane and Featherbed Alley, to name a few - conjure up images of the past.

St George has a pleasantly slow pace that sets it aside from the bustle of Hamilton, Bermuda's present-day capital. With the exception of outlying forts and beaches, all the main sights are within walking distance of the town center and are easily explored on foot. Be sure to give yourself a full day to appreciate all the town has to offer and treat yourself to lunch at one of those breezy harborside restaurants.

If you're touring in winter, consider coming on Wednesday, as it's the one day of the week when the Old State House and the Old Rectory are open to the public. If you're visiting in the summer, keep in mind that cruise ships dock at St George during the week so it tends to be less crowded on weekends.
