Bermuda is a small set of islands, and the Dock Yard is at one end. There a a few shops, restaurants, and museums. If you have a few hours to 'kill' this is a nice area to walk around.

Clearly spending time here you are a tourist but, well, I was so I enjoyed this very touristy shopping and sight-seeing area. Crafts to explore, restaurants and cruise ship sightings.

The Royal Naval Dockyard was used by American and British navy personnel from the mid 1800s to 1951 as a strategic naval base. It has been coverted in parts to a shopping mall and a nautical museum. The buildings are original and unbelievable with 5 foot thick stone walls that were built to resist cannonball hits. We spent an entire... More

Old forts, tourists, gift shops, artisans, and cruise ship passengers are the core of this site. Went to catch a glimpse of the America's Cup participants but those ships are not visible to the public. Maybe not worth a visit if you're not a shopaholic.

Well worth a visit whilst in Bermuda.The museum and in particular The Commissioner's House , is full of historical facts dating back to the discovery of Bermuda in the early 1600's. There is an admission charge but it is very reasonable and allows exit and re entry during the same day. The shopping mall is the other main attraction and... More

The grey, stone-built buildings of the Royal Dockyard have a sense of history and permanence about them. They now house pubs, restaurants, and stores. It doesn't take long to cover the immediate area but the stroll is flat and pleasant. I think they are missing a trick though. Given that this is where the major cruise ships dock, and people...

November is the start of the winter off season in Bermuda. This is most noticeable at the Dockyards. Many businesses are closed or close by about 5pm. Still nice to stroll through and only a 20 min ferry ride from Hamilton so it's worth a visit any time of year.

Takes you all around the dockyard and clock tower mall. And the best part is that it is free! Will pick you up right at your cruise ship and bring you within easy walking distance off all of the dockyard shops. Plenty of restaurants and pubs to visit. In summer you can pick up a ferry that will take you... More

We went to the Dockyard to tick the tourist spot off the list. No cruise ships were in so it was relatively quiet, infact more like a ghost town. It was interesting to see the crafts centre and where they blow glass but if you're after some history is steer you to St Georges and the Forts there and in... More

I went there on the Ferry from Hamilton ( 9$ return ) wich is a nice trip of 30 minutes passed beautiful houses and with lovely views. The Royal Navy Dockyard is well presented and the Museum ( 15 $ entry fee ) the most interesting part with lots of well presented information on Bermuda and the history but you... More
