Nelson's Dockyard reviews
Until visiting Antigua, I did not know that Lord Nelson based his Caribbean fleet in English Harbor in the 18th century. All the buildings have been well restored and it is well worth a visit. Allow..... more »
Breathtakingly beautiful! I recommend a trip here when in Antigua. Very close by are the Pillars of Hercules which are worth your time as well. more »
Absolutely great historic place full of history. So many original old buildings still in use. We visited here as part of our tour .Some great photo taking spots here. This is a world heritage place. Now used for some very luxurious yachts and home to yacht races in the summer time . Well worth the visit. Restaurants here if needed.
A sight to behold, the best of the Caribbean and English heritage. Seeing the big boats was cool. Some touristy shopping to be had just before you go in too. The bakery was good serving nice local bakery foods.
