Somers Garden is named for British Admiral Sir George Somers, who was admiral of a relief fleet heading for James Fort, Virginia in 1609. His ship, Sea Venture, wrecked off of Bermuda and the result was the colonization of Bermuda by the Virginia Company.. The garden is a quiet, tranquil spot with a moongate, Norfolk Island pines, a calabash tree, hibiscus shrubs, royal palms and perennial flower beds. Overseen by the Corporation of St. George's, it is open daily from sunrise to sunset. There is no admission fee.
