St. George's Island
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the town of St. George on the island of Bermuda has been largely untouched for over 100 years. The delightful, well-preserved colonial town has its inhabitants to thank for the well-maintained appearance, who insisted it would never lose its historic charm.
The Old Town is full of original architecture and historic fortifications that illustrate St. George’s importance in the development of the British Military between the 17th and 20th century. A stroll along its alleys and gorgeous coast line is literally a step back in time.
Colonial buildings on central King's Square include the 18th century town hall, while the Tucker House Museum is a typical home from this time, and has displays of crystal, silver and period furniture. The World Heritage Centre is worth a visit, along with St. Peter's Church, founded in 1612.
Water Street is home to boutique shops and galleries and Somers Wharf – a shopping and dining complex that sits on the historic waterfront, offers a more modern shopping and dining experience away from the Old Town centre. Beautiful Somers Gardens and Tobacco Bay Beach are two popular spots to find peace and relaxation.
