This is really well-maintained and when we were there a tall ships regatta was ongoing. It was great to wander round and look at all the yachts and boats and their names and where they had come from. We found a great bar, cool in the shade, drinks were quite reasonably priced.

This is a great place to visit and was renamed as Nelson Dockyard as Nelson served there for a time on his way up through the Navy ranks.

It has a mix of Georgian and Victorian buildings all restored and now an array of shops and restaurants but you can still easily get the feel of how this would have been, lots of fantastic yacht’s in the harbour, it costs $8 to get in but is worth the price to understand some history of Antigua

Beautiful location and if you walk a little way further from the tourists so peaceful and calm - could quite happily spend all day / several days there just relaxing. The whole area is beautiful but the actual dockyard is very interesting with many historical buildings and artifacts still in place as well as a delight to walk along and sit off one of the docks.

Really enjoyed the history and seeing some beautiful boats. A good place to grab a bite and a cold beer on a hot day
