Capture the best views on the island and discover the charm of Nelson’s Dockyard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s a living testament to maritime history. This is one of the most popular attractions in the eastern Caribbean.
First visit the Block House Ruins, which sit at an elevated position of 446 feet above the sea on a sheer cliff and offer a spectacular view that sweeps across Indian Creek and the Atlantic Ocean. The Block House was the principal lookout and officers’ barracks for the First West India Regiment back in 1787.
Next visit Shirley Heights, named after Sir Thomas Shirley, was the principal fortification of the British fleet stationed at English Harbor. The view from Shirley Heights is stunning, taking in virtually the entire east coast of Antigua.
Nelson’s Dockyard has a unique atmosphere and is the last remaining Georgian naval dockyard that is still in use today. Here you can explore the Admiral’s Inn, museum, mystery pillars, art gallery and bakery. Stroll by the old stone quayside and admire the sleek yachts moored up alongside and soak up the unique atmosphere.
Bottled water is provided.
