  Royal Navy Dockyard with ducks

The Royal Naval Dockyard was once the largest naval base in the Western Atlantic. Its massive breakwaters,wharves, boat slips, barracks and keep were constructed just before the 1812 war. The Keep was built with walls 20 feet wide, and visitors can enter after crossing a concrete drawbridge over the surrounding moat.

Of course this was off limits when we were here in 1963.

Open daily 9:30 am to 5 pm, with last admission at 4:30 pm. I think the admissions are for both the dockyard and the museum

Adults US$7.50; Bermuda seniors and students $6. Family rates.

. The # 8 bus service from and to the city of Hamilton on the outward and inward routes services the Middle Road all the way to the end of Parish, but misses out some areas of the Parish. It is the most frequent service. This main road has many interesting attributes, showing off much of typical urban, suburban and rural Bermuda. It's the only Parish stretch of any main road in Bermuda completely inland until Southampton Parish going west (the Parish before this one)
