We arrived by cruise ship, which is a perfect reuse for this old naval facility. The exterior stone walls and buildings have been well restored and preserved but there is little left to see of the original structure on the interior of the buildings. From the inside this could be any shopping mall you have ever seen.

Dockyards is at the far west end of Bermuda but Hamilton and St. Georges are a short trip by fast ferry which docks within an easy walk of the cruise ship wharves.

If you are a bit more adventurous you can rent a scooter and ride to the farthest points in Bermuda in about an hour. Oleander Cycles has a rental office at the Dockyards. Other scooter rental companies will pick you up at the ship and shuttle you to their office.

It's a cute little get away. We enjoyed getting away and seeing the sites. Lots of cruise ships in and out all day.

We visited the RND dockyards several times as we travelled around Bermuda on their ferry and bus system.

The shops and restaurants are very cruise ship tourist oriented and can be crowded when the cruise ships are at dock. The area has what I call “Cruise Ship Veneer”. To see a more real Bermuda we recommend you hop a bus or ferry and venture out from the dockyards.

The architecture of the old English fort was fascinating. Unfortunately we were not able to visit the National Museum of Bermuda which is located here because our schedule did not match their opening hours.

(As a side note: We recommend you check out a 1 to 3 day bus/ferry pass. It is a great and economical way to see the island. The pass is good for both the public ferries and busses. We found it difficult to find a bus schedule and the bus stops are not marked at all. We did find that the drivers are very helpful. Let them know you are visiting and where you want to go and they will drop you at the nearest stop. We seldom waited more than 15 to 20 minutes for a bus. )

Can't miss the RND if you visit Bermuda by air. Cruise ships dock there so lots of people watching too. Ferry trip to Hamilton is a great take-in. All restaurants can't miss.
