If you find yourself with some time to spend in the Dockyard area, don't miss this stop. Each time we have been here, the glassblowers have been working, and it is fascinating to watch. You'll also want to browse the pieces for sale as there is a great variety of beautiful pieces of art and jewelry. It is not air conditioned though, so you might not want to choose the hottest part of the day to visit.

The people here are very talented. They do some amazing work. We bought several pieces to bring back home. They accept cash and most credit cards. Hand blown items are reasonably priced as well. We really enjoyed it. When you are done. You can walk next door and buy wonderful Rum Cakes! It is a short walk from the dock if you arrived on a cruise ship.

Lovely art and jewelry pieces. You can watch the glassmakers at work and also sample/purchase rum cake.

Dockyard Glassworks and Rum Factory is the best place to be in the dockyards! We sampled ALL of the cakes and purchased Chocolate and it was moist and yummy when we got home and shared with family.Should have bought 2. I recommend buying what you see here as the airport and gift shops almost double the price for the same cakes and glass pieces. The staff was very friendly and even offered me their last Valentine's Day glass heart since we missed the special the day before. I bought 3 pieces of jewelry for myself and a gift and they are truly unique pieces I haven't seen anywhere. Dockyards is a wasted trip unless you visit here! Worth every moment.
