His Excellency, The Governor of Bermuda, John Rankin CMG, opens the doors of Government House along the north shore so that visitors and locals can walk the halls and experience the history and culture of the grounds. The intimate tour will include a look into The Royal Suite, the living quarters for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and other royals when they visit Bermuda. The tour will also pass through the expansive gardens, where the likes of John F Kennedy Jr. and Sir Winston Churchill have planted ceremonial trees.
Two bus tours, each up to three hours long, are on offer for this experience, which include a Bermuda cocktail to conclude the outing. Tour 1 starts at 10am; tour 2 starts at 1:30pm
The tours begin at the Hamilton Visitor Services Centre and meander through central parish neighbourhoods locals know well to give visitors a show-and-tell understanding of our way of life out here in Bermuda. The tour will then move to Government House where the Governor's Aide-de-Camp offers a rare guided tour experience of the late 19th Century property.
For security reasons, tours must be booked no less than one week in advance and only one ticket per person will be allowed; the ticket buyer's name must match the name of the photo identification presented on the day of the tour. Tickets now on sale at Ptix.bm
