Hamilton Parish

Is the second eastern parish and is one of the most beautiful parishes filled with limestone caves, nature reserves and a railway trail that spans the length of the parish on the Northshore.

Harrington Tribe was the original name of the parish after Lucy Harrington, a wealthy woman in the Elizabethan era. It was then changed to Hamilton after James Hamilton. Locals refer to Hamilton Parish as Bailey’s Bay. It is located just 5 minutes west of the airport. It is not to be confused with the City of Hamilton which is located some 8 miles away in Pembroke Parish. Hamilton parish also circles around the Harrington Sound water area which has many deep water limestone caves and subterranean passages. Even if you have limited time in on the island, you must plan a visit to the parish for some of the great attractions it offers.
