Situated on a hilltop on the eastern boundary of the City, Fort Hamilton boasts panoramic views and is an ideal venue for gazing at the Island’s spectacular sunsets.
Historically, a former British Garrison, the Fort was used as the headquarters for The Bermuda Volunteer Rifle Corps from the mid-1890s until the mid-1930s. The ensuing years have seen the dry moat surrounding the Fort developed into lush tropical gardens, accessed by a circuitous path.
Well worth the visit, Fort Hamilton and its manicured floral gardens and lawns include a refreshment concession and public convenience. The Fort has become an integral part of Hamilton’s parks and plays host to a variety of events throughout the year. The park is open from 8:00a.m. until sunset, 365 days of the year.
