Hamilton, the capital of Bermuda, is situated on the northern side of Hamilton Harbour. It is Bermuda's main port, administrative capital, as well as financial centre, and replaces St. George as the capital in 1815. Named after Sir Henry Hamilton who was the governor of the city from 1786 to 1793, Hamilton only has an estimated permanent population of 969 to 1,500. Hamilton's climate is classified as humid subtropical as the weather is warm enough for growing tropical plants and trees. However, they may not grow into fruition because there's not enough heat for the trees to bear fruit. The reason for Hamilton's unique weather is due to the influence of the Gulf Stream, which brings in warm humid temperature, and the Atlantic Ocean, which brings in the colder air. For its size, the city boasts many parks where tourists can take their time to enjoy nature and the beautiful scenery. One of the notable attractions in Hamilton is Victoria Park, which occupies a large block at the centre of the city. Travellers will definitely enjoy lunchtime concerts and other activities at this Hamilton park during the warmer months. Another landmark in the city is the formidable-looking Fort Hamilton which features underground passageways, fortifications, huge cannons, and landscaped gardens. The Bermuda Cathedral, or more popularly known as The Anglican Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, dates back to 1844. It was rebuilt as the request of Queen Victoria after it was razed by a fire. It was finished in 1897, earning Hamilton its city status. &nbsp, Hamilton activities are ideal for travellers who want to have a leisurely time.
