Buses then head along the South Road towards Tucker’s Town. Places of interest on the way include the Bermuda Botanical Gardens (also home to Masterworks and Camden), Palm Grove Gardens, Devonshire Bay Park, Verdmont, Spittal Pond, and John Smith’s Bay.
On reaching Tucker’s Town the route heads north, passing Rosewood Tucker’s Point, and then along Harrington Sound Road and Wilkinson Avenue. The Crystal Caves are here and well worth a visit.
The historic town of St George is the final destination. There’s lots of interesting sights here including the Bermuda National Trust Museum, the Bermuda Perfumery, the replica of the Deliverance, the Unfinished Church, St Peter’s Church, the Old Rectory, and the State House.
Some of the attractions in St Georges Parish (such as Fort St Catherine, Achilles Bay Beach, Tobacco Bay Beach, and St Catherine’s Beach) are a 15 minute walk from the bus stop in St George. If you don’t fancy the walk, a private minibus service operates from King’s Square in the town centre. Fares are just a few dollars. There’s also a taxi stand on King’s Square.
Passengers should note that some buses on Route 1 only go as far as Grotto Bay. Check the official timetable or the sign on the bus for clarification.
Bus 1 runs approximately every 30 minutes with services starting from Hamilton at 6.45 am.
The entire journey from Hamilton to St George takes approximately 65 minutes.
