The dockyard complex of shops etc is fine and we'll worth visiting but don't miss a visit to the adjoining fort and grounds of the original navel headquarters and also dolphin quest within the grounds. Great 2.5hrs spent there. Amazing history and views.

Whether you get there by scooter or bus, the Dockyards are worth the trip... most exciting right now is to witness the preparations for the America's Cup... it will get crazy busy starting the middle of May... plenty of places to visit, such as the museum, FunGolf, and shops...

A cool place to go for the day! Great trip on scooters if you can. Very scenic and best to go in the morning and be gone by 2pm as cruise ship visitors fill the area!

The Royal Naval Dockyard was built by the British after the American War of Independence ended. The naval fort was designed to be the Gibraltar of the West, based upon Bermuda's strategic position. There is a lot to see and do here.

This is a fascinating place which is full of history. A visit to the Commissioner'sHouse is well worth it. The tourist board office are very welcoming and full of information, not only about the Dockyard,but the whole island. An added bonus this year is the presence of the America Cup and if you are lucky, you can see one or... More

Nice and easily walked with many shops, restaurants/bars, National Museum and a dinky beach area. There is a Trolley that will take you around but really not necessary unless needed.

The whole island was clean and enjoyable to visit. The dock yards had stores, museums and fort remains.

A good mix of shops, a lot touristy, with the normal tourist merchandise, but also some independent gems. Great pharmacy, some restaurants and the historical elements meant we spend best part of day here. Much better than expected. Most shops didn't open til 11am though.
