More information

Bermuda’s proximity to the United States made it an attractive choice for summit conferences between British Prime Ministers and US Presidents. The first summit was held in December 1953, at the insistence of Prime Minister Winston Churchill, to discuss relations with the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Three Powers participants included Winston Churchill, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower and French Premier Joseph Laniel.
