I read about the Birdcage on Trip Advisor and my husband was very interested in being a daredevil to get his photo taken. You do have to navigate a few lanes of traffic with no crosswalk (especially confusing if you are American--ha!). But he made it safely and we got some great photos looking down Front Street.

Take a picture here in the birdcage and you will get almost the entire front street in your picture. Front street is our major hub in the island.

This is where police direct traffic from at rush hour. Other than that time, its a great spot right on Front Street to grab a very unique photo opportunity.

This birdcage was once used to direct traffic. It remains at its original site. On Harbour nights when front street is closed off you can get in for pictures

I know the birdcage is quite an iconic part of Hamilton but when it's unmanned it just looks like a very impressive stand in the middle of the roads.

Probably the most photographed attraction in Bermuda. The officer in the Birdcage is similar to the Guards at Buckingham Palace.
