Top UK travel writer Simon Calder is in Bermuda for a two-day whirlwind tour of the Island’s attractions.

The aptly-named ‘48 Hours with Simon Calder’ is also being filmed for

The Independent newspaper’s website.

Mr Calder aims to share Bermuda’s charm with UK readers. Experiences include a tour alongside Hamilton’s Town Crier, and a John Lennon ‘Double Fantasy’-themed stroll in the Botanical Gardens as well as a meeting with Tourism Minister Wayne Furbert.

Mr Furbert said coverage from a high-profile travel journalist promised to make Mr Calder’s visit a fruitful one.

Mr Calder, who has visited before, vowed to show British viewers what was possible in a 48-hour stop.

“It’s a great escape to a land where you can feel the love,” he said.
