Bermuda’s capital and most-visited parish is a former British port that’s home to brightly-colored colonial buildings and is a bustling playground for businesspeople and travelers alike. Easily explorable on foot (or scooter, a surprisingly popular option), Hamilton was a British port for quite some time, which lends loads of charm in the form of historic churches and monuments. Aside from its easy access to Bermuda’s unforgettable diving, Hamilton has an array of gourmet restaurants and luxury shops to help you make the most of your destination wedding and honeymoon.
