The dockyard feels a little unfinished at present. During the high season ona guided tour, I'm sure it would feel more atmospheric, but for us it was a little flat with not much to do or see. It's probably best viewed from Shirley Heights, where the views are stunning.

It is well worth the visit and very informative from a historical perspective. The setting of the waterfront restaurants at night are particularly enjoyable.

This is a gem. Every visit to Antigua includes a visit to Nelson's Dockyard, English Harbour and Shirley's Heights. Well preserved buildings. Unique and compelling history. Fantastic Setting.

I toured this area by boat. It’s absolutely lovely and occupied a good hour. Plenty of boats to see, plenty of history of course from Nelson’s day and places to eat. A gem of a place, not to be missed.
