Not much to see.A couple of old buildings that were transformed into restaurants. You could be in and out in 15 min.

“History in a great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Nothing much to dislike and the old building are fascinating to explore. Lots of history especially if you enjoy naval history.

“A good spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

A picturesque setting for lunch. Most of the historic buildings are well maintained though used mainly for souvenir shops.

“Spend a day - or more - visiting the Dockyard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

You can take a few hours to wonder through the Dockyard and look at the museum area's and buildings. Then it is great to take the trail up to Fort Berkeley and have a look at the view (takes about 10-15 minutes to walk up there. If you haven't been before, its worth hiring a taxi to take you on a tour to the other units of the park: The Blockhouse, Shirley Heights and Dow's Hill Interpretive Centre. They are worth a visit, but are too far to walk to from the Dockyard. Aside from the historical features, the Dockyard is also home to some excellent restaurants, notably The Admiral's Inn and The Copper and Lumber Store.
