Nelsons Dockyard and English Harbour – Antigua

Nelsons Dockyard is the only surviving Georgian naval dockyard in the world. It has a museum and several other restored buildings which stand as a memorial to Admiral Horatio Nelson and the Royal Navy who used it for many years during the Caribbean wars with the French, Dutch and Spanish during the 18th and 19th centuries.

It is part of the national park where you can go hiking through wooded valleys and past old fortifications.

It is also the home of the leading yacht charter companies and headquarters for the Antigua Sailing week.

Whilst I am here during low season there are still some beautiful yachts around in English and Falmouth harbours.
