This is a lovely place to start your Bermuda trip. Travel center and everyone working at transportation centers like the ferry are very helpful and informative.

This spot is pretty exciting if you've never been up close to a cruise ship before (which I hadn't). There are a lot of tourists in the summer time, but now it's quite a bit quieter. There's plenty to do here. Lots of shops and dining opportunities, plus different tour companies (like Fantasea, which I highly recommend) can take you... More

the museum was great ( and open) but it was disappointing to discover that so little was open. The weather wasnt great which didn't help but advance notice of what is available and even a bus timetable would be good

I have made many visits to this Dockyard. This time we took the free tour with the Historian which I can highly recommend. This man is so knowledgeable of the history. We also toured the Commissioner's House - also highly recommended to see the beautiful furniture, paintings and the history of the first immigrants to the Islands.

The Royal Naval Dock yards with an important historical significance. What it has morphed into is a total tourist trap. I realize that the merchants are gearing their product line and prices to the upcoming World Cup but that will only last for a few months and then what's left?? The surrounding property is a major construction site. We may... More

We arrived via ferry and spent the day wandering the dockyard. The old buildings were interesting and we enjoyed walking the back alleys away from the crowds. A cruise ship was in port... so the main areas were packed.

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
