St. George: Forts, Food and Ghosts
$149 per person
We'll depart King's Wharf and tour the island as we make our way to the town of St. George's on the east End. Take a stroll through Bermuda history at the island’s largest fort. Situated on the northeastern tip of St. George’s, Fort St. Catherine sits between St. Catherine’s Beach and Achilles Bay, towering above pink-sand beaches and offering sweeping ocean views nearly everywhere you look. The fort was constructed in 1614 and underwent numerous upgrades in the 19th century; inside, comprehensive exhibits and artifacts showcase 17th-century island life. Kids will love crossing the drawbridge to explore the fort’s many tunnels, ramparts and towers.
The we're off to the Unfinished Church. Dramatic archways and weathered grey stone contrast against vibrant tropical foliage at the Unfinished Church, located in the historic Town of St. George on Bermuda’s East End. The gothic church was conceived as a replacement for St. Peter’s Church, which had been badly damaged by a hurricane. Due to funding problems, parish infighting and yet another damaging storm, construction was never completed.
We'll have an hour or so to explore the town of St. George on your own. Step back in time as you stroll the centuries-old brick streets of the Town of St. George, Bermuda's former capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The well-preserved historic town and nearby fortress make St. George's and the East End a haven for British colonial architecture, history and culture. Nearby, discover many unique natural attractions, including the limestone formations of Tobacco Bay Beach, Tom Moore’s Jungle and the Crystal Caves of Bermuda. Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve and Ferry Reach National Park are both flush with flora and birdlife, including several rare species.
We'll have a group dinner in St. George's including a couple of drinks and wide variety of dishes prepared at the White Horse Pub. The White Horse Pub & Restaurant is one of Bermuda’s oldest and most famous pub and seafood restaurants in Bermuda. Passed over many generations, The White Horse is well known for its great food and lively bar scene where locals and visitors come to eat and have a great time. Enjoy waterfront dining at its best along with spectacular views overlooking the St. George’s Harbour.
