Explore Bermuda’s West End, from Hamilton to the Dockyard, discovering the island’s Caribbean culture, colonial history, fine architecture, and stunning tropical scenery on a customized, half-day bus tour.
Begin your tour in Hamilton. Bermuda’s capital city is home to a lively port, stately architecture like the Government House, and beautiful gardens. Check out the lush tropical plants flowering in the one-time moats of Fort Hamilton, and then hit the road to admire Bermuda’s scenic shoreline as you venture west.
Cruise by the azure waters of idyllic Elbow Beach, the coves of rocky Warwick Long Bay and secluded Jobson Cove, and the world-famous pink sands of Horseshoe Bay. At the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, the oldest cast-iron lighthouse in the world, clamber up its 185 steps for sweeping panoramas of Bermuda’s West End.
Stand on the ramparts at Fort Scaur to see the Atlantic on one side and the Great Sound on the other, or head to Somerset Bridge, the world’s smallest working drawbridge, and help a passing yachtsman open the cantilever and sail under.
The last stop on your tour is the Royal Naval Dockyard. Wander the fortified complex and stop by sites like the Maritime Museum for a look at what life was like when the British Empire ruled these seas. Spend some time poking into shops and eateries, taste an authentic island specialty at the Bermuda Rum Cake Company, or watch glassblowers at work in a seafront studio before the return trip to your hotel.
