Town Crier ‘Discover Hamilton’ Tours Commence

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes” – Marcel Proust

Imagine you could experience a place that you visit every day as if you were seeing it for the first time. What if we told you, you can?

The City of Hamilton is inviting Bermuda’s residents to explore the City through the stories of our international award-winning Town Crier Ed Christopher with our FREE ‘Discover Hamilton’ walking tour, for a fresh perspective on the City that’s bound to transform the way you see Hamilton.

The seasonal tour, which returns on Monday, April 1, takes walkers (residents and visitors) across Hamilton on a trip into the past, bringing to life every street corner, past culturally and historically significant landmarks such as Nellie’s Walk, The Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, Doctor’s Row, and more!


As the City’s Town Crier for 30 years, Ed’s extensive knowledge is based on years of research and oral histories passed down through the generations. While his tours are widely popular among tourists, the City wants to encourage the island’s residents to come and explore their own backyard in 2024!


There’s so much to learn by delving into the colorful narratives and history of Hamilton,” said Town Crier Ed Christopher. “I invite our local community to come and explore Hamilton’s hidden treasures and rich heritage, uncovering tales and insights that may have eluded you before. The experience will leave you brimming with newfound knowledge and anecdotes.

The City invites the island’s tourism and hospitality sector to mention the City’s Discover Hamilton tour to their overseas guests and customers looking for a fun, educational, and cultural excursion at no cost. It’s the ideal introduction to the island’s capital city as Ed is a wealth of information when it comes to recommending places to visit, dine, and shop in Hamilton.
