I think that while Trip Advisor has broken this into several categories, the Two Hall, the Square, and even Ordinance Island are basically a single stop. Walk through here at your leisure. You will want to see the town crier and the walking tour is...More

King's Square is a great spot to sit and relax while the world takes a spin. Surrounded by historic buildings and water, the square is very picturesque. The town crier comes out at noon each day to perform a re-enactment of the dunking of the...More

We were there for NYE so had to see the onion Drop. It's pretty cool, but get dropped off late (11?), watch the Onion, then head elsewhere. There's a couple of pubs to eat/drink in the square in advance, but both are very "skeevy".

The only reason to see this Square is to see the ceremonial trial and dunking of someone in the water. Very colorful, and the biggest crowd we saw in 5 days on Bermuda.

I am not sure of the times, but this place puts on a presentation with real actors. The situation is a mock trial of a suspected witch dunking.

Stopped through this area during our half day, get your pics in the wooden gallow thing and can go inside to where the town meetings were held. Some historic artifacts. Not mind blowing but nice to see.
