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.

The rest of it, not so much. Just a bunch of stores, nothing special. Even if you are a shopper i don't think you will be impressed. The Fort on the other hand was loaded with history and great exhibits. And spectacular views. Well worth the time spent here. Allow three or four hours to see it all.

Once you step off the ferry or your cruise ship onto the dock, you enter a world of adventure! There are wonderful restaurants, shopping, an outdoor bakery called the Dockyard Pastry Shop with the most amazing cup of cappuccino and homemade desserts, the National Museum, The dolphin quest and so much more to explore.... Right now they're setting up for... More
