St. George, Bermuda-port

Dating back to 1609 when the Sea Venture wrecked off the coast, the first settlement of Bermuda began here at this north end of the archipelago. St. George's parish is comprised of two large islands, St. George's and St. David's. The town of St. George's is the second-oldest English town in the New World, and for almost two centuries, was the capital of Bermuda. It is named for both Sir George Somers, the founder of Bermuda, and Saint George, the patron Saint of England.

Tour Code: SBD-004

The history of Bermuda truly begins in St. George, the oldest inhabited town of English origin in the New World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. What better way to immerse yourself in four hundred years of culture and history than by walking the cobblestone streets of this thoroughly charming and quaint "Olde Towne".

Starting off from the pier, a qualified St. George's historian will be your guide and provide you with an interesting and informative introduction to the town's unique past as you stroll along narrow roads once roamed by rogues and rumrunners, pirates and privateers, blockade runners and the local gentry. Learn about the town's early history and current heritage plans. Hear the local folklore and see samples of the indigenous flora and fauna.

During your tour you will visit Stuart Hall, an 18th century National Trust home with open wooden beams which is now the home of the Bermuda Perfumery as well as St. Peter's, the oldest Anglican church of the new world. You will then make your way back to the pier where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of moderate walking. The tour is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair or those with mobility concerns. Comfortable, flat walking shoes; sun hat; sun glasses; sun screen and a bottle of water are suggested.
