Part of our tour to Antigua included a visit to Nelson's Dockyard. Our guide gave us a brief history lesson and then we were on our own to tour the yard, including the museum. We conversed with a local gentleman who had some great stories...More

Worth a visit to see the old buildings and museum. Some very pleasant places to stop for a drink and little shops to browse. Well kept and managed.

Visited here a couple of weeks ago. I was intrigued by the architecture and landscape. I was disappointed because there were not many boats at that time but it did not take away from the trip.

Not everyone's idea of the best way to spend a lazy afternoon but it's well worth a visit. An hour to absorb the rich history of the area and a good choice of places to get refreshments. No visit to Antigua should omit this attraction!

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... More
