Loved it here, came here a couple of times, so much to see and do, lovely shopping places to eat and great bars, sit and relax over a cocktail and you can almost imagine Captain Jack popping up

It's quite the walk up to Fort Hamilton but worth it! You can walk through the tunnels and also sit at the top on benches and watch the port in Hamilton. And if it's important to you, it's free to get in!

Fort Hamilton is my favorite place to visit in Bermuda, except of course the beaches! I loved exploring the moat and the walls of the fort. And it is free! I highly recommend taking kids here. The only negative is that there was no place...More
