Oldest and delightfully quaint but totally functional post office. Always stop and buy cards and stamps there and soak in the cedar lined atmosphere. Utterly charming piece of history and of Bermuda of old.

Step back in time to buy stamps and postcards. The historic site tells the history of the post and stamps in Bermuda, the lady assistant was very helpful explaining the cost and type of stamps. A truly lovely gem in Hamilton.
