Good photo op of the town

Go out to the island, a short 1 minute walk for the view and picture opportunity of the town. The cruise ships dock here in the summer, so might be crowded?

There is a replica of the ship Deliverance, a statue of Bermuda founder Sir George Somers, and a small park offering benches. We sat on one of these to eat our lunch, purchased at the nearby grocery for much less than the rather pricey restaurants in the area (and very good too).

Short walk from town square, it is one of the main things to see in St. Georges. Be sure to look down at the clear waters and fish along your walk.

The anchor (pun intended) piece of Ordnance Island is the replica of the ship Deliverance. Although portions of it are in the midst of being restored you are able to go aboard and tour the ship, where you will hear the story of the Deliverance and its crew, sister ship, British and American History and Bermuda's important role in the...

Beautiful views. There is a cannon, statue of George Somers, benches and grassy area for picnic. We sat and watched sailboats. There are lots of fish and you can see down to bottom of harbor. We fed fish a bit. There is a boat but it was closed.

There is usually a steady stream of traffic across the harbour bridge to this tiny island which houses a replica of the ship Deliverance, a statue of Bermuda founder Sir George Somers, and a small parkette offering benches under the palms where one can watch all the boats in the harbour. One most days you can see one or more... More

They have a replica of the boat that wrecked in Bermuda giving rise to the English colony and a building that welcomes some boats. Other than that there isn't much to see really.

The island is across a small bridge from the Town Square. Has a lively looking statue of Admiral Sir George Somers the "founder" of St, George who settled with his men - the survivors of the shipwrecked Sea Venture. Also has a replica of the ship Deliverance one of two ships built by the survivors. This is a peaceful place... More

On the good side, marvel at the modest scale of this replica of an ocean-going vessel, On the bad, marvel at what a terrible state it has run down to now, on the eve of hosting the America's Cup competition...
