Apparently set up for cruise ships to stop and shop, we enjoyed it as a day trip from our hotel on the island. The shopping wasn't great, but the atmosphere, views, and National Museum were worth the trip.

great site pity about the shops and general lack of anything interesting - catering to mass tourists getting off cruise ships and not wanting to actually visit the island but just buy tacky gifts !

If your going out here be sure to pair the trip with a meal or with a visit to DolphinQuest. The cab ride from Elbow Beach (maybe mid island) was $40 with tip. Same trip back on the bus was $4.50. Be sure to go in and sample the rum cakes. The salt-glazed pottery factory has some beautiful serving pieces but I found it difficult to justify the price since I would have had to find room in my luggage or paid too much for shipping. The clock tower shops have lots of souvenirs. The shop in the building with the frog and onion tavern has some well priced souvenirs as well.

Our ship docked at this location and though I had been here 17 years ago, it has greatly improved. The main attraction -- the National Museum of Bermuda in the Commissioner's House has only recently been refurbished and is a very well presented historical of the area; well worth the $10 charge for adults. There are other attractions such as the Dolphin Quest where an interactive session with dolphins is available, the Bermuda Craft Market, the Snorkel Park, a new Fun Golf miniature golf course, the Clocktower Shopping Mall, the Bermuda Rum Cake Co., and the Dockyard Glassworks.
