Located in St. George's harbor, this island was once storage space for the British army; now, it is the site of the Deliverance, one of the island's most popular attractions.

Great story and a part of American history that is probably not even remembered by most Americans. If not for this little ship things could have been different. Have al look. Needs some upkeep as dry rot is setting in.

Named for the Ordinance stored here by the British military, it is located at one end of King's Square. Not much to see except the ship Deliverance and if you time it right, a town crier and dunking of a local wench.

The site of a replica of the Sea Venture, the ship that wrecked trying to get to Jamestown. It's a pay-what-you-want boarding, and this tiny ship took dozens of people across the Atlantic. Given the horrors mentioned about life in Jamestown, one could understand why...More

This is a good place to walk around when you are waiting for the ferry to arrive. The sea breezes were lovely and it was fun to look at the boats in the harbor.

This land based "reproduction" of the Deliverance ship which was crucial part to the beginning of Bermuda settlement is definitely worth a brief visit. Reasonable well organized to keep the visitor's interest.

The ship is a replica of Somers Ship, the Deliverance. There are stairs to easily board the ship. I'm always amazed that people sailed long voyages in these small ships.

What you see is what you get. Small ship, very smelly inside and you can see everything you need to see- just stand outside it. Please DO NOT base your opinion of wonderful, beautiful St. George based on this attraction and the ocean that surrounds...More
