I had really looked forward to visiting this Georgian dockyard. It was good, but not brilliant. It won't take long to look around the buildings and there isn't much information available unfortunately, which is a real shame as I would like to have learnt more...More

The view at the point is wonderful. The ships in the marina are speculator. They have done a great job of preserving the area. It is nice to have the restaurants there too. Well worth seeing

If you are in St James (as we were) you can easily hire a car (we did) and you are about 15 minutes from Nelson's Dockyard where there is free parking at the entrance. Have a great stay
