The Bermuda Arts Centre at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Sandy's Parish, Bermuda is a great place for the artsy and artsy-wannabes to peruse.
There are 4 artists and other artists cycle every 6 weeks. Art is displayed for enjoyment and purchase and they also offer workshops. You'll find a variety here from paintings, fused glass, sculptures, jewelry, and so on. Admission is free.
Whether you're in the market or not, it is always neat to see the talent of others and if you happen to find something you love (you probably will) and have money and room to take home (the bigger IF), you can take pleasure in knowing you're supporting an artist and that you have a unique souvenir from your time on Bermuda, The Rock!
The Clocktower Shopping mall in Sandy's Parish, Bermuda is probably one of the first or last things you will do while on Bermuda. That's because it is so conveniently located to where the cruise ships dock at the Royal Naval Dockyard. The mall is a huge, beautiful, stone building with nice landscaping and a variety of stores with in. It's a great option to cool down and to grab some last minute souvenirs!
The Victualling Yard is the part of a naval (as in the navy, not an orange or your belly button. [navy as in the water military, not a bean or a color]) facility that handled feeding and hydrating. This involved storing, preparing, and packaging food and drink. It's an interesting courtyard with old buildings, cannons, and short palm trees. And it's near the Frog and Onion Pub. Score! You need to check that place out..
Inside an old Machine shop in the Royal Naval Dockyard you will find 2 types of art under one roof: one edible on admirable.
Don't Forget The Liquor Order!
Don't miss the opportunity to visit the Lili Bermuda Perfumery while on Bermuda.
It's a unique experience and a great "free" thing to do (unless you buy a fragrance- and you probably will, hehe) The owner gave us a tour of the perfumery where everything is bottled and packaged by hand!!
It was interesting to learn a little bit about the process and it felt really special to smell each scent in the show room.
Lili Bermuda fragrances have been handcrafted in Bermuda since 1928! They aim to capture the essence of the island in each bottle. It makes a great souvenir if you like a scent because you can only purchase Lili Bermuda fragrances on Bermuda or on the Lili Bermuda website! It's also a souvenir that will last for a long time, and won't clutter up your house and collect impossible-to-remove dust like a manufactured seashell knick-knack. (Just saying'..)
