Fortress Bermuda – Four centuries guarding Britain’s interests overseas
By J. Vitor Tossini - October 14, 20190
Bermuda, the oldest British Overseas Territory, has more than four centuries of shared history with Britain.

This article was submitted to the UK Defence Journal by J. Vitor Tossini. Vitor is a student of International Relations at the Sao Paulo State University. He also explores British imperial and military history and its legacies to the modern world.
Until the Second World War, the territory was widely used by British military forces. During the Cold War, the Americans used it as a central base to patrol the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean.

BERMUDA DOCKYARD

One of the most popular tourist destinations on Bermuda is the area's historic Royal Naval Dockyard. Here dock the big cruise ships and you can find a lot of highlights for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Not to be missed is the Clocktower Mall, the numerous water sports, the FUN ZONE with Snorkel Park Beach, Dolphin Quest and National Museum. So there is something for every visitor. Incidentally, the ferries leave for Hamilton and St. George's from here!
