Home to Bermuda's House of Assembly and the Supreme Court, this building is most interesting for its neo-classical architecture and watchtower commemorating Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.

The building is under construction at the moment. We did get to go into the chamber. It smelled moldy (no air ventilation). It was neat to see where legislation is passed in Bermuda. I did find the tour underwhelming.

If you get a chance to take the walking tour of Hamilton - do. Its short, interesting, and informative. The visit to the sessions house was a highlight

We certainly enjoyed hearing the brief history of Bermuda and Parliament house from the Sergeant at Arms. The building is impressive for its size. The furnishings are comfortable and cozy.

Very nice parliament building. I really like the style. For those interested in politics you can take tours during the week. Much smaller then US but a fascinating look into the government of Bermuda.

Bermuda has a reasonable claim to have the fourth oldest democratic assembly in the world, although of course this building dates from the 19th century, after the capital moved to Hamilton. Turning up for an advertised tour (on a Thursday afternoon) we found the building...More
