The place oozes history and you can really walk in Nelsons footsteps. The museum is interesting and you can take a guide or self guide yourself with the leaflet given on arrival. The charter yacht show was on so lots of posh boats to drool...More

Tastefully restored historic dockyard with a modest entry fee, an interesting museum and a short but pleasant walk out to the old powder house. This is a small island so worth managing expectations, this is not the Royal Dockyard at Portsmouth but neither does it...More
The beautifully resorted and recent UNESCO appointee Nelson's Dockyard does not disappoint. It's compact, but you can really get a feel for what the world would've been like when this was a working dockyard. The museum has a lot of information for those of historic-interest...More

Every bus #17 that goes there returns to St John's (unless, possibly, it is the end of the day.) We opted to take the taxi to Shirley Heights but there are frequent buses. They leave St John's when they are full or nearly so and collect/drop off passengers along the way until English Harbor. Cost was $2.50 US one way.
