Cockburn Town Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Cockburn Town is the administrative capital and the historic and cultural center of the islands. It is strongly reputed to be the landfall island of Columbus during his discovery of the New World in 1492. The town itself is well suited for a walking tour. Duke and Front Streets are lined with historic 18th and 19th century landmarks that reflect the Bermudan style architecture of the salt era. In and around town you will find a couple of very interesting places to visit. these include the old His Majestys Prison, National Museum of Turks & Caicos Islands and the small but town libary. All worth a visit, and with 5 minutes walk of each other.
