  • Beautiful and historic area to see! We went here with a taxi service on the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas and it was wonderful. Highly recommended to see when you are visiting.
  • Small but a nice half-day out. If you have visited Portsmouth Historic Dockyard in the UK, you will recognise the buildings, although these have palm trees and verandahs! There are some small shops for gifts and folod (the bakery is worth a visit) as well as the Copper and Lumber Hotel for lunch and drinks. Lovely views over English Harbour from the dock. The ticket price includes access to Shirley Heights and Fort Berkley. The former will need a car or taxi to visit as it is the other side of English Harbour. The latter is a short, but hilly, walk (has a dozen steps or so too) but well worth the 10 - 15 minute walk to admire the views.
  • Amazing place. Very peaceful and the great toreguide was very helpful. Not much there but great to take in the history
  • A good place for a walk around and to find out about some of Antigua's history. Well kept and some nice restaurants and bars here too.
  • Great historical sights and nice view
