Front Street in Hamilton runs along the Hamilton Harbor
and is really the main bustling place of Bermuda. The first thing you will notice here is the row of pastel colored buildings that are designed from the typical colonial architecture.
Here you will get the high class retail shops selling jewelry, clothing, liquor, crystals etc. Some of the best Restaurants & Bars
of Hamilton City are located on Front Street.
There are many commercial establishments like banks & insurance companies that are located here as well.
Coopers is one of the flagship retail stores of Bermuda located on the Front Street. Since the time shops like the Triminghams have closed down for good, this is now one of the best shopping stores of Bermuda. However, due to high import duties, items in many of the shops here are more expensive than in the U.S.
Front Street - Hamilton Bermuda
I would suggest that you also explore the narrow alleyways that lead off the Front Street. We do it every time we are here. There are narrow lanes like Chancery Lane, Bermuda House Lane, or the Walkway where you can see a number of small shops selling collectibles or locally designed art and crafts, or small restaurants offering local seafood.
There is a cruise ship berth right opposite to Front Street. Smaller ships sometimes call this port. During the cruise-ship season, the Front Street often becomes quite crowded.
But these days with most of the ships docking in Kings Wharf and St George, this problem is somewhat under control. Nevertheless during the high season and particularly in the evenings, this is where most of the tourists hang around.
On Wednesday evenings during the summer months, Front Street becomes hyper active with great celebrations with vendors selling food on the street, performers like the Gombey Dancers demonstrating Bermudian dance culture and lot more fun and activities with the whole street being illuminated. Check out Harbor Nights
to know about this great entertainment evening.
The main ferry terminal of Bermuda is at the west-end of Front Street and near the Bank of Bermuda
There is a Visitors Information Center
