Touristy spot, but probably a must see for some. Hear a bit of history, see the old stocks, but walk down the block to Somer's Garden then up the hill to the unfinished church as well.

A sleepy little village but sometimes there is a lot of tourists. All the shops are quite high priced. You must get a picture in the stockade as this area has a lot of history.

There is no one home if you arrive without a cruise ship. The town is sleepy and things do not seem to open unless cruisers will arrive.

We arrived just in time to watch an old English dunking, which was a re-enactment of the old English punishment of dunking someone under water. If you get the chance to see one, don’t miss it.

It is very cute town with a square. The town crier is very nice and informative. They reenact dragging a woman to the plank and they engage with the audience! It is very funny!

We expected the town to be busy when we got there about 3:30pm on a Friday. Instead, the city hall and info center closed at 4pm, and most of the shops were closed. There really is not much to do in st. George's, we were...More

Feeling a bit overwhelmed by your many Bermuda choices? You will find ready help at the information centre here, both in the form of a large array of printed material and a supremely polite and well-informed desk staff. There are also gratifyingly clean public restrooms...More
