Historic Walking Tour of the Town of St. George, Bermuda
Shipwreck Central St. George
Imagine stepping back into history where you will discover many things that span four centuries of time: experience the scent of Bougainvillea and hibiscus in the breeze; explore the Unfinished Church, rising like a skeleton on the hill, the columns, archways, and partial walls chilling and mysterious; hear the voices of the past and learn how a slave won the King of England’s favour and his freedom; learn about the British flagship Sea Venture, on her way from England to Virginia, that was wrecked on the reefs off Bermuda during a violent summer storm and immortalized by William Shakespeare. Here, you may even find the heart of Sir George Somers in Somer’s Garden.
If breathtaking waterfronts, emerald gardens, historic forts and entertaining walking tours are on your list of things to do, then a sightseeing tour is a must. Our sightseeing tour takes you to St. George’s best locations for photos, breathtaking views, and a historic walk. Put on your earphones and experience the Town of St. George in a whole new way! You’ll be stepping back in time to where Bermuda officially “began” in St. George in 1609. Here you’ll find the oldest English settlement in the new world, buildings that are several hundred years old, including Bermuda National Trust Museum, Customs House Square, Tucker House Museum, the Carriage Museum, and the new World Heritage Centre.
In St. George, you’ll be walking through a UNESCO World Heritage site, a status given to “cultural properties of outstanding universal value”. We’ll guide you through some of St. George’s alleys and laneways, where you’ll find Pilot Darrell’s house and the Bermuda Perfumery, where you’ll experience subtle and warm fragrances not found anywhere else in the world.
