Welcome to the Bermuda National Trust


The Bermuda National Trust cares for 277 acres comprised of 82 properties that represent much of the best of Bermuda’s heritage – a variety of traditional historic houses, islands, gardens, cemeteries, nature reserves and coastline. In addition, three museums display an outstanding collection of artefacts owned and made by Bermudians, and tell the intriguing story of the island’s development.

The Trust has a strong education programme, focused on encouraging appreciation of our built and natural heritage and what it means to our future. 

Our mission:

To protect and promote Bermuda’s unique natural and cultural heritage forever, by:

- acquiring and conserving land, buildings and artefacts;

- inspiring appreciation and stewardship through advocacy, research, education and participation

 

 For Everyone, Forever

Christmas Walkabout Cancelation Notice

With the safety and health of the community in mind, the Bermuda National Trust has made the difficult decision not to host the much-loved Christmas Walkabout this year.  Traditionally, the Christmas Walkabout represents the launch of the holiday season for many.

While we are sad not to celebrate with the thousands of you who head to St. George’s on the first Friday in December every year, we will make sure the festive season includes some of the popular elements of the Walkabout. We look forward to welcoming visitors to Tucker House and The Globe for exclusive Christmas tours and to Waterville for our Holiday Pop-Up in December.

The Walkabout has been a traditional highlight for visitors and residents – as well as the St. George’s community. We encourage our members and supporters to visit the old town, and enjoy what it has to offer in December.
