The free tour was certainly worth our time. The guide was informative and well spoken. He did not sound recorded and answers questions along the way. The town crier is truly a step back in time to listen to.

I have always been interested in this type of things despite not studyig polical science at all at the college or university level. Certainly alot of history to this building starting back to 1612 and there are political meetings still beening held in this building to this date.

I even signed the guest book and noticed numerous signature from around the world. One doesn't have to be a member of the Commonwealth to try to understan how politcal affairs will impact on this still British island. There are various displays to read and a display case to see. The varrious objects relate to this ongoing politcal process conducted at the local level by nine elected officials in office. One gets a sense and insight on how things are done in a orderly way and been conducted in this way for hundresd of years!

From a personal note, my citizenship award in Grade 6 plus being elected to Student Council in Grade 7 has given me a critical tthinking point of view on such things. In my personal opinion, this historic is a must see if yyou wwant to learn about this most important part of Bermuda life.

A great town hall with a 18th century town crier, true to form and never out of character. Listen to the daily events or news of the day. Place you head in the stocks or watch the daily spouse dunking.

My wife and I arrived in St. George and were looking around on our own when we stumbled upon a free tour being given by a local on the history of the town and various other places. This tour started at Town Hall, then we went over to the Sir George Sommerset statue to learn about how the group that was coming over to Jamestown crash landed on Bermuda during a terrible storm. Under a year later, he left on another ship to go to Jamestown and eventually helped save the settlement from starvation. The ship he built was called the Deliverance, and there is a boat there to tour as well. Next we went over to the Statehouse, then over to Sommer's garden and finally ended at St. Peters church. The entire way, our guide was full of great information and ran down the history of this quaint area. Normally I am not one for tours or guides and like to discover the city on my own, but this was definitely worth the time. The guide answered everything from history questions to general questions about daily island living. It was the highlight of our time in St. George.

Saw the ducking of the town gossip/scold here at noontime. David the town crier is great. We enjoyed our tour of the building.
