  • We visited Nelson's Dockyard as part of an Island Safari trip so it included the tour guide for the dockyard in our tour price. It's a quaint area, with plenty of history and interesting things to loo...  more »

  • Not everyone's idea of the best way to spend a lazy afternoon but it's well worth a visit. An hour to absorb the rich history of the area and a good choice of places to get refreshments. No visit to A...  more »

  • Interesting place, good tee shirts, nautical souvenirs, and cool colonial styled buildings. The only con is that basically you have to pay eight bucks to buy souvenirs. Kind of strange. Other than that it was pretty cool.
  • I am lead to believe that Nelson hated the island, due to the fact that in his day it was disease ridden, any one posted there had a very limited life expectancy. Now of course all has changed, Nelsons dock yard is a well preserved time capsule & well wroth a visit.
  • Best preserved historical site in Antigua
  • Very cool place to learn about History. It very interesting to learn about how things got done back then. Very clean well maintained.
  • Interesting historical site. Beautiful location. Friendly people and good food.
