Historic St. George#2 in Best Things To Do in Bermuda
- 0.0Food Scene
Did you know that St. George was one of the first English towns established in North America? And like its contemporaries (Jamestown, Virginia, and St. John's, Newfoundland), St. George holds firm to its colonial roots. When you visit you'll pass the same Town Hall and Old Rectory that the settlers used hundreds of years ago. During the peak summer season, period actors roam the winding streets, simulating the old days – there are even town criers and townspeople sentenced to the stocks. In 2000, the historic town of St. George became a UNESCO World Heritage site.
There's much to see in the village, but be sure to include the following on your itinerary: the Old State House (the oldest stone building on the island), King Square (where you'll find a replica of the pillory, stocks and dunking chair used for punishment) and the Unfinished Church. Visitors say taking photos in Town Hall Square is a must.
Bus Nos. 1, 3, 10 or 11 will take you to the village of St. George. Walking through the historic town is free, but you'll have to pay to enter some of its sites. Visit St. George's entry at UNESCO or the Bermuda National Trust for more information.
