“For stamp collectors especially”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Having collected stamps as a child, this was well worth a visit: otherwise I doubt if it would be of interest ! A very nice old building- and air conditioned !

“A Stamp Collector's Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Let's see - I grew up coming to Bermuda several summers in a row, I'm a stamp collector and a history buff. There could not be a better site for me than the Perot Post Office in the middle of Hamilton.

But truly, anyone with an interest in seeing a restored old post office (actually still functioning) would enjoy stopping by.

“It only takes a minute!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Step inside this quaint old fashioned post office, even if you don't need to buy a stamp! The smell of cedar wood and olde worlde charm brings a smile to your face! It's not far from the Birdcage on Front Street and is worth a quick visit!

“Quaint and Delightful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

You definitely feel like you've fallen back in time the minute you pass through the small doors into the lobby of this little post office. Sit at the old fashioned table to address your letter or post card and then step to the clerk behind the cast iron clad service window to post your item. This place is so tiny....it used to be the main post office serving Hamilton years ago, but today serves as a small postal station, and the mail is transported from this location to the main Hamilton Post Office later in the day, or even the next day! A must see for all history buffs.
Delightful experience.

“Living history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

All visitors of a certain age from the UK should drop by here.
When considering what the Royal Mail has done to our village and rural post offices over the last 15 years, by shutting them down or selling them off or franchising them, you will be able to pop in here, and weep at how things used to be.
Just pop in to buy a stamp and be transported back in time.
