Hamilton is the capital of the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda. It is the territory's financial centre and a major port and tourist destination.

Hamilton is located on the north side of Hamilton Harbour, and is Bermuda's main port. Although there is a parish of the same name, the city of Hamilton is in the parish of Pembroke. The City is named after Sir Henry Hamilton, governor from 1786 to 1793. The parish of Hamilton pre-dates it.

In spite of being the administrative capital of Bermuda, Hamilton only has a permanent population of only approximately 13,500 (2010), however 40% (27,000 of the population in Bermuda (69,000) work here. Hamilton is the only incorporated city in Bermuda, but actually is smaller than the historic town of St. George's. A more representative measure of Bermuda population tends to be by parish.
