Hidden Gems Bermuda Forts Excursion

  /    /  Hidden Gems Bermuda Forts Excursion

Our adventure begins within the gates of Her/His Majesty’s Dockyard. This historic landmark, was once the principle base of the British Royal Navy in the Western Atlantic utilized from 1795-1958 as a shipyard and additionally, to guard the British against attack after the American War of Independence and during the Cold War. It has now been restored into the vast ‘Maritime Museum’ with so much history to be shared. Travelling along, we reach Fort Scaur, which was built as the Dockyards first-line of defense, for it has Bermuda’s most spectacular panoramic view to oversee all vessels coming into the island's waters! After that, we journey across the mainland over a few bridges taking us into the Western Hemisphere’s oldest town called St. George. Here we will have the opportunity to view a few different landmarks, including Bermuda’s 2nd oldest fortress which is the location where the first inhabitants landed when they arrived and colonized the archipelago of 365 islands. We will then travel to our final destination on the outskirts of Bermuda’s capital, Hamilton in the parish of Pembroke. Crossing a wooden bridge above a moat 20 feet below, we reach Fort Hamilton. This location is adorned with cannons and military ammunition around its perimeter. The best views of the city can be seen from this peak. The actual fort is deep underground and leads to a botanical moat where you will find some of the most genuine plants only found in Bermuda. Come along to hear a story of great intrigue where 91 forts were constructed around the islands of Bermuda for two very different reasons! **This tour starts in Royal Naval Dockyard, and ends in Hamilton City**
