Saint George's Travel Guide, Bermuda

Saint George's Travel Guide – Bermuda’s colonial jewel

There are many beautiful places in Bermuda, and as far as colonial towns go, it is a real gold mine. Hamilton, the capital, is one of them, but St. George is another amazing town that hasn't yet been completely eclipsed by Hamilton. Founded in the 17th century, St. George is said to be the oldest continually inhabited English settlement, but this interesting piece of information would certainly be less interesting if there wasn't sufficient proof for it. Of course, I'm talking about St. George's exquisite colonial architecture, which granted it the title of World Heritage Site. So start planning your trip with this Saint George's Travel Guide!

Saint George's Travel Guide – Transport

Bermuda International Airport is your gateway to the islands, and it is located in St. George’s Parish. It is closer to St. George than to Hamilton, and you can easily take a taxi, or the bus if you’re on a budget and get to St. George in a blink. Of course, if you prefer a more scenic journey, you can cruise your way into Bermuda, and dock just in front of the town’s main square. Once you are on the island, you will have no choice but to rely on public transport, seeing as there are no car rentals on the islands. However, you can rent a bike, although if you are visiting strictly the town of St. George, there will be no need for that, seeing as it is small enough to explore on foot. Taxis are another option, especially if you want to pop into Hamilton or another nearby town (and most towns are nearby in Bermuda). They are cheap and will get you to your destination quicker than buses.

Saint George's Travel Guide – Accommodation

There aren’t that many accommodation options in strictly within the town of St. George, but what you get is top-notch service regardless of whether your are staying in a hotel or a bed and breakfast. The Old Rectory, for example, is a charming guesthouse on Broad Alley, behind St. Peter’s Church. This guesthouse is an restored 18th century parsonage, originally built by a pirate, of all things. The service is great and you’ll have a lot of privacy, since the guesthouse has only two bedrooms. If you want the company of fellow tourists, you should find a nice little cottage in St. George’s Club, a mini-village of typical Bermudian cottages, perfect for family vacations. The club is just a 2 minute walk from the sandy beach around Achilles Bay. The colony also has a great restaurant, Griffin’s, one of the best in the area. Aunt Nea’s Inn is a luxurious, romantic bed and breakfast with rooms full of antique furniture and canopy beds. The atmosphere is historic to say the least, but it also manages to feel cozy, and you’ll never feel like you’re sleeping in a museum despite the fancy rooms. This is a great place for you if you want a bit of peace and quiet, but you don’t want to feel isolated – after all, a range of pubs and bars are only a hop away from the inn.
