  • My Favorite Place for Souvenirs!

    My favorite place to buy souvenirs of all types was at the "Dockyard Pharmacy." It is located in a quaint old building facing the actual dockyard, yet it is very modern inside. Being that it is an actual pharmacy, it sells much of what you might expect to find in a drugstore in the US so if you've forgotten to bring along things for personal needs...

  • Home of Lily Bermuda Perfumes

    No visit to St. George's would be complete without a visit to "The Perfumery"! Located in the quaint and oh-so charming Stewart Hall, the Perfumery has been creating and hand-bottling its own fragrances since 1928 under the brand Lili Bermuda.The beautiful Stewart Hall is an attraction in itself as it is a 300-year old Bermuda National Trust...

  • Everything Under One Roof

    Although we were docked at King's Wharf for the better part of 3 days during our stay in Bermuda, it wasn't until the last day when we felt compelled to do a little last minute shopping and visited the "Clocktower Mall". Part of the area known as the "Royal Naval Dockyard" area in the west end of Bermuda, the Clocktower Mall occupies one of the...

  • Former Department Store in Hamilton

    from their website: "Established in 1842 by James Harvey Trimingham as a dry goods store, Trimingham's has expanded to become a showcase for fine merchandise from around the world. The store is still family owned and operated to this day." NOTICELast time I was in Bermuda (Nov 2004) Smiths and Trimminghams were one big store because Trimminghams...

  • Front Street Lions

    Although I don't buy or wear much jewelry, and didn't shop here, I couldn't resist taking this picture of Crisson with the lions guarding the Rolex watches (The watches are removed at night). This store has several locations; (441) 295-235171 Front St.• (441) 295-2351 55 Front St.• (441) 295-2351 20 Reid St.• (441) 295-2351 York & Kent Sts., Town...

  • Sadly Closed

    The Railroad museum is on one side of this little building which is the old Aquarium Station on the railroad (so it is almost within walking distance of the aquarium). There are photos, signs and wicker chairs from the first-class train compartment plus video of the train. The lady that runs the museum has cats and Bob had a good time petting the...

  • One of the worlds best linen collections

    The Irish Linen Shop in Hamilton has now been in business for well over 50 years, and they advertise that they have one of the most diversified collections of linen in the entire world. While I am FAR from a linen expert, it's easy to see that the collection of finery on Front Street is something very special. It reminded me of fancy shops I'd...

  • If it's not Scottish, it's CRAP

    Does anyone remember the old "Saturday Night Live" skit? The two old Scottish guys running a store and they always say "if it's not Scottish, it's CRAP". OK, just reliving my young adulthood.There are several fine stores in both Hamilton and St. George that feature the finest in Scottish tartan clothing and haberdashery. You'll pay a pretty penny...

  • Maps, cedar, jewelry and other goodies

    The Bermuda Craft Market and the Bermuda Art Center are excellent places to peruse and perhaps purchase local crafts. Some are more along typical tourist items...rum cakes, wonderful English jellies, sherry pepper sauces and such. But, ypu always have to pick up a few of those things, right?And, there are some higher end items of interest as well....

  • An old-time bookshop in St. George

    OK, one more shopping tip on books... this one is for the historic town of St. George on Bermuda's east end. This is literally a little "cellar" shop, located a few steps below the street level on Water Street in old St. George.There are items of interest to tourists, including nautical and historical titles. And, the Book Cellar has a delightfully...

  • A place to turn pages in Hamilton

    I don't know, maybe it's my "second career" working for ForeWord Magazine. (www.forewordmagazine.com if you'd like to know more) But, when I travel, I'm especially apt to notice local independent bookstores.If you have a need for reading material while in downtown Hamilton, make a turn onto Queen Street and look to your left. The Bermuda Book Store...

  • Classical Glass

    I have a separate tip describing the artisan demonstrations at the Dockyards Glassworks. And as I mention in that tip, I'm always in awe of glassblowers. Such a graceful craft.... if it weren't a certainty that I'd end up with 3rd degree burns all over my body, I might give it a try myself.The Dockyard Glassworks has a wonderful selection of...

  • Crafts made in Bermuda

    Occupying part of what was once the cooperage, this large stone building dates from 1831. We went here right after we left the museum. All of the things were locally made and there are people who demonstrate what they do. Candles, cedar work, ceramics, Christmas ornaments, jewelry, miniature furniture, quilts, wearable art, dolls, paintings, glass...

  • Hamilton's shopping-Trimingham's

    There are several perfume shops in Hamilton, but I think it was at Trimingham's on Front street that I found what I was looking for: L'air du Temps. The last time I purchased this perfume was in Paris when my husband and I were first married. The prices did seem to be better here in Bermuda compared to the states.Trimingham's also had clothing,...

  • Hamilton's shopping-Crisson's

    I had priced rings in several shops, but I found a beautiful tanzanite ring mounted between two diamonds for $327.00 at Crisson's. It was the best price I had seen and I had read that jewelry was %30-40% less here in Bermuda than elsewhere. I LOVE MY RING and recommend shopping for jewelry at this shop.

  • Bermuda--A memory in painting!

    A great way to keep the memory of Bermuda fresh and real is to see it in a painting. The Carole Holding Studio had beautiful scenes of Bermuda that capture the essence of the island. As we considered which size or island scene to select, we realized this was going to be a special purchase. After much thought, we bought a small watercolor that is...

  • Conserve Gas -- It's expensive

    If you plan to drive or rent a motorscooter in Bermuda, try to to conserve gas because it's very expensive! You europeans should not be alarmed, but if you're from the US, you can expect gas prices more than double what you pay here. Regular Gas, nothing fancy. You can expect to spend $6 or $7 per gallon, on par with Europe, double USA!

    now the best place to buy Bermuda shorts Bermuda shorts I was told the place to go for Bermuda shorts was Triminghams but they are gone after 163 years in business. The Bank of Bermuda will acquire the building for redevelopment.This is a sad day for Bermuda, the locals say Bermuda without Triminghams. Imagine that. But I was directed to get my...

  • Bermuda Rum-cakes

    Hey, rum-cake is rum-cake. It's special as it is!! Bermuda is known for their excellent rum-cakes. They have a variety of flavors too. Even a non-alcoholic would crave it (case in point, myself). Besides, the alcohol (or at least most of it) leaves during the baking process, anyway. I'm not sure how much rum-cakes are by the item or pound, but...

  • Shopping is for those who can definitely...

    Anywhere downtown, whether it is in St. George's or Hamilton parish. I hear the rumcake is very nice. Also, there are some tourist shops with t-shirts and other souvenir items such as their pink sand in tiny glass bottles, postcards, and locally made jewelry. At least twice as much as in the U.S.! For those who are not from the U.S., I'm sorry...
