This is a great location to spend a day. You will have some history with your shopping. The Mall is full of interesting shops with handmade fair. The glass blowing factory is a great stop with free coffee and beautiful glassware. The Pastry Shop is a great place to get a little food and drink. If you're more hungry then... More

I was a little disappointed with the dockyards. I thought the clock tower mall would have more local artisan flavor but it was more like one of the converted malls in the states with a fudge shop and ice cream parlor ( think st. Lois train station or Baltimore inner harbor). The dockyard is gearing up for The America's Cup... More

Travellers cannot come to Bermuda without visiting the Royal Naval Dockyard. It is a cherished history lesson in a stunning location with the added advantage in 2017 as being the setting for the final round of the Americas Cup.

We took the ferry from Hamilton to Dockyards, had a nice walk through the entire area. It's a lovely spot, mostly restored, lots of local shops, pubs, restaurants. This will be a fantastic spot to see the Americas cup boats, most of which are already there practicing and setting up for the big event in June 2017.

This Naval Dockyard has lots of history to it. There are many stores and boutiques to shop for souvenirs. Small little town with lots of history. Everything is close by and within walking distance to the ship. Very cute and interesting place.

A nice visit to the heart of the military headquarters of the British navy here in Bermuda. Most all historical attractions have a minimal amount of "clutter" so you feel as if you are among the very old artifacts, including cannon, ramparts and other items some dating back hundreds of years.

Not just your typical tshirts shops. A fun mix of goods in the shops, beautiful views and plenty of restaurants to choose from for lunch. Easily reached by bus.

Worth a visit. Glass blowing interesting and they sold rum cakes there. A lot of kitsch but fun. A few restaurants close by

When I visit Dockyard, I am always amazed. The scale and size of the buildings is great. You feel like you are walking through history. There are shops, restaurants, a museum, swims with dolphins etc. It is mainly open during the day - and you can get there by bus or ferry from Hamilton (better choice). Not sure if they... More

My husband and I visited the Dockyard in Bermuda for the first time on a Sunday Jan. 8, 2017. We picked a very bad day as it was pouring rain! .. Lol. Needless to say, we were soaked, but still walked around as we were told that weekends are normally busier, even during non-peak periods. We joined the free Tour,... More
