Learn about the The Clocktower Mall. Bermuda was once a bastion of Royal Naval power in the Western Atlantic, and the grandeur of its architecture reminds us of its rich nautical history.
One such highlight are the Clocktowers, the centerpiece of The Royal Naval Dockyard. Build in 1856 as storehouses, these imposing structures with its 100-foot twin towers can be seen from miles away.
The Northern Tower shows the time of the high tide, once vital information to sailers. The Southern Tower acts as a clock and was once referred to as “the four-faced liar,” as each face gave a slightly different time — and of course, the Dockyard workers used the most advanced dial for knock off time.
Today, The Clocktower Mall is home to more than 20 stores, amongst them gift shops, jewellers and fashion boutiques. Open seven days a week — except Good Friday and Christmas Day — this is one of the most popular shopping venues in Bermuda.
