Fodor's Expert Review Somerset Village

Dockyard and The Western Parishes Town/Village

Its position on Mangrove Bay once made it a popular hideout for pirates, but judging by Somerset Village's bucolic appearance, you'd never guess that now. The shady past has been erased by shady trees, quiet streets, and charming cottages. As far as actual attractions go, this quaint one-road retreat has only a few eateries and shops—most of them offshoots of Hamilton stores. Nevertheless, it provides easy access to Springfield and the Gilbert Nature Reserve (29 Somerset Rd. www.bnt.bm), a 5-acre woodland with paths that connect to some of the most scenic portions of Bermuda's Railway Trail.
