St George’s, Bermuda is arguably the oldest town in Bermuda, and at one time was the capital of Bermuda until Hamilton took over the duties. Unlike Hamilton, St George’s never modernised and still looks very much the same as it did when it was founded 250 years ago. Because of this, and because of the existence of many of the old forts that used to protect the town, UNESCO awarded St George’s the title of World Heritage Site.
St George’s offers plenty of things to see for travellers. Most of them are historical and all of them are within an easy walk from one another. The best time to visit St George’s is during the tourist season, which runs from May through to September. During this time, the residents of St George’s dress up in period clothing and re-enact the old days for the tourists.
