We did not have time in our brief time in Hamilton to tour. However, it is a beautiful building from the outside with a nice tower. The tower is topped by a ship, presumably representing the "Sea Venture", credited with the founding of the original British colony.

We took about an hour to tour through the building and the art exhibits. The building with its expansive staircase and lovely chandeliers made for a nice stop. Located just a short walk from the ferry or the bus terminal it is easy to find. It also has an elevator for those that cannot do the many steps on the... More

I recommend visiting both the National Gallery and the Art Society. There are free public tours during the week at 10:30am that start at City Hall and go all over Hamilton. Bring your walking shoes- it lasted 2 hours.

The building is worth a short visit. Located on Church Street which is an up hill walk from the ferry terminal and then turn right on Church Street and across from the mall. For art lovers go up the staircase to reach the Bermuda National Gallery. Built in 1960 and visited by Queen Elizabeth 2 in1975. Sometimes there are events... More

With a theatre where you will often find shows being performed throughout the year along with two wonderful art galleries, you won't be disappointed with what City Hall has to offer.

An impressive building which houses a theatre and two art galleries. The national art gallery was closed for an exhibition change so we headed further up the stairs (past an incredibly bad portrait of Queen Elizabeth II) to the modern art gallery. A wonderful hanging piece depicting love and hate with an LGBT flag was the highlight it was also... More
