Explore Vibrant Hamilton through City Sightseeing Tours Bermuda

As the vibrant capital and commercial hub of the islands, Hamilton presents the perfect city sightseeing tours Bermuda. The pastel-hued city winding along the shoreline packs a surprising amount of culture, cuisine, and captivating sights within its small area waiting to be uncovered.

From street art alleys to historic churches, high-end boutiques to bustling markets, landmarks like the picturesque City Hall to hidden hole-in-the-wall eateries, Hamilton rewards urban explorers with charming surprises tucked around each corner.

The City’s Historic Allure

Incorporated in 1793, the port town of Hamilton pays homage to former British Governor Henry Hamilton with street names, statues and sites tracing his legacy. As Bermuda’s main port since the early 19th century, Hamilton rapidly developed into the island’s center for shipbuilding, trade and commerce.

For history lovers, the city’s winding lanes are steeped in Anglo-American influences, maritime heritage and African culture. The story unfolds through preserved buildings interwoven with modern structures. The civic British Parliament Square district flanks the sturdy Hamilton Princess Hotel, a storied lodging since 1885.

Across the street, the gothic-style Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity with its gleaming gold roof stands testament to the Anglican roots introduced by Hamilton. The towering Commissioner’s House built as the British naval base headquarters during the American Civil War era now houses expansive museums.

This harmonious blend of historic sites and modern amenities makes Hamilton an intriguing capital to uncover.
