Afternoon tea at four and the local passion for cricket are just two signs of Britains influence on this island of pink beaches and gingerbread houses. Browse in the shops on Front Street and absorb the local color - the relaxed, amiable mood is contagious.
King's Wharf has something for everyone. Sample typical island food and stroll through the shops and museums of the Royal Naval Dockyard. Sail the clear waters of Hamilton Sound. Find quaint gems at the Bermuda Arts Center and Craft Market. If that's not enough, a snorkel park and water-sport facility offer hours of activities to the adventuresome.
This unspoiled town overlooking St. Georges Harbor was Bermuda's first Capital and remains its most fascinating sightseeing area. The town is steeped in period charm as befits a place that was Britain's second settlement in the New World. Many of its original twisting alleyways and colonial-era buildings remain intact, and several centuries-old structures have been preserved and set aside as museums.
