Art and Culture Await in Bermuda's Historic Royal Naval Dockyard


 
Travel & Tourism
Bermuda, the small British territory in the northwest of the Atlantic Ocean, is probably best known for its rum. Well, it’s probably best known for its namesake, the Bermuda Triangle, where ships and planes allegedly disappear in mysterious circumstances …

But we’re not here to talk about that.

The island has a lot more to offer than alcohol and intrigue. It’s steeped in history and has a flourishing cultural scene – and both are on show at the Royal Naval Dockyard, just a stone’s throw from some great Bermuda accommodation.

National Museum of Bermuda

Bermuda has a storied history as a major waypoint between old-world Europe and the new world of the Americas. Indeed, the dockyard itself was the British Royal Navy’s main base in the region from the American Revolution well into the twentieth century. All this history and more is well covered in the National Museum, which tells the island’s story from its earliest folk cultures all the way up to the present day. Especially notable is the ‘Hall of History’: a staggering, gigantic mural, depicting the long and colourful history of Bermuda. Accommodation is the name of the game here, with artist Graham Foster’s piece showing the work he put into researching the island’s contested histories.

Jon Faulkner Gallery

The Hall of History is an excellent way to whet your appetite for art – head on down to the Jon Faulkner Gallery for the main course. Feast your eyes on a cornucopia of art gathered from far and wide. Works by international artists are set alongside the island’s own products, and various workshops even offer you the chance to get involved in art yourself.

Bermudan Arts Centre

Similarly, the Arts Centre collects a wide range of work in various different media. The subjects of major exhibitions vary, but the real attraction is the atmosphere of the place. The heavy focus on Bermudan work draws a respectful, cultured local crowd, which contributes greatly to the relaxed ambience of the gallery.

Dockyard Glassworks

Located in a converted industrial building, the glassworks offers unique souvenirs alongside a very particular kind of show. The bespoke items on sale are wonderful, but almost play second fiddle to the main event: the skill and spectacle of glassblowing in action.

Bermuda Craft Market

If you want to buy something special to take home but glass just isn’t quite your ‘thing’, head along to the craft market. It’s a great spot to pick up locally made, unique trinkets, and the buzz of the area encourages healthy haggling and back-and-forth bartering.

Where to Stay

There are lots of great options for Bermuda accommodation, and many are close to the dockyard. One hotel that comes highly recommended is the Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa. As the name might suggest, this resort offers its own private beach and only the best in upscale luxury pampering. What’s more, it’s just a short drive from the dockyard, allowing you to head down to catch the attractions without feeling any need to cram things in.
