A former Royal Naval Dockyard turned holiday resort, King's Wharf is a favourite port of call for cruise liners visiting Bermuda. The old Georgian maritime fort has been re-invented into a playground for the thousands of cruise passengers who come ashore. The old buildings of the dockyard, constructed by convicts from prison ships and once known as the 'Gibraltar of the West', have been cleverly adapted to suit the new resort role, now housing cinemas, craft markets and malls. Local tour operators also offer a vast range of activities to amuse and amaze the thousands of holiday visitors that flock into the Dockyard every week.

Address: North Arm, Royal Naval Dockyard.
