Bermuda East End Culture Passport & Tour
Not many are aware that you can buy a Culture Passport to explore the culture and heritage at the eastern end of Bermuda which includes St. George and St. Davids. With one passport you can get access to several great attractions including historic British fortifications built in 1600s, museums that showcase the history and culture of Bermuda over the past several centuries, buildings and homes of historical significance, historical churches etc.
Keep in mind that St. George is the oldest continually inhabited British settlement since 1612 and is now the UNESCO World Heritage Site. So the place is of high historic and cultural significance. On top of it, if you have this Culture Passport, you get access to special tours organized by the participating establishments or places.
In the following sections I'll describe the places and tours you can access with this passport, how to get the passport, its price etc. Visit the individual links of the attractions for details, open hours and to know public transports etc.
UPDATE: Culture Passport has been discontinued.
