The Town of Hamilton superseded The Town of St George as Bermuda’s capital in 1815 and it became a city in 1897.  Hamilton is primarily a business district with few structures other than office and government buildings, shops, churches and two cathedrals.

This is the City Hall and Arts Centre. And no, it isn’t 25 past eleven …. it’s the wind coming from the south south east.

The Cabinet Building on Front Street

The City of Hamilton has a limited permanent population around 900 but about 40% of Bermuda’s working population (circa 13,000) work here. It has long maintained a building height and view limit which states that no buildings may obscure The Cathedral of the Most Holly Trinity.

Bacardi’s smart new offices complying with the height restrictions.

There are no Starbucks in Hamilton so there are still plenty of clean and functioning public conveniences around town.

The city streets have a distinctly British feel with cars being driven on the left and familiar street furniture from the yellow lines, traffic lights and traffic signs.

Although I’ve never seen this one in the UK.
