Heritage Quay, St. John's

Stroll along Heritage Quay, lined with duty-free shops and colorful bars and restaurants. Grab a drink and a tasty snack, or amble your way down the boardwalk and enjoy the view of St. John's harbor. Visit the shops for deals on clothing, accessories, cosmetics, electronics, and liquor. When the cruise ships dock here, tourists throng the quay; if you're not a fan of crowds, visit at another time.

  • This place was congested and nothing special. We weren't even out of our car and people approached us. Its T shirt city! Nothing different from every other port you may stop in. I like to shop where l...  more »
  • Heritage Quay is located in the city of St. John's. Very close to the ferry docking. If you are a shopper, it is a high concentration stores area in an open-air mall two story concept: clothing, jewel...  more »
  • Heritage Quay is an amalgam of stores, restaurants, pubs, peoples walking, real native downtown life. The harbour behind offers seascapes and tax free stores are of course all over the place!  more »

  • I have just come back from antigua this week its my home from home but l have to say it I've been saying this for years Antigua town needs a face lift it needs fixing up its a beautiful island but unfortunately when the tourist comes into heritage keys into the main town area it looks very run down please Antigua I'm begging you fix up St John's plus also the roads needs fixing as. just came back from St Kitts as well St kitts puts Antigua to shame
  • Great place, nice memories and amazing people. Busy during the rush hours when the ships are anchored in the port and nostalgic after the amalgam of the visitors are leaving. A lot of shops of all kind are situated on the High street for every taste and budget, also a great variety of souvenirs and gifts. The people are so friendly and kind at every corner and are offering the tourist the opportunity to get awesome artisanal items.
  • Love the ambience and fun to see a mixed of busy tourists and travelers, local people, and street vendors selling their cute t-shirt souvenirs and more. The area is nicely packed with colorful shops and mostly filled with souvenir shops and tours offers, with some food and drinks only some blocks away. We can definitely bargain with the street vendors and again I'm happy because they're not too pushy. The price is so so for t-shirts, especially if you buy many, but it's expensive for small staff like magnets or souvenir plates. Typical tourists favorite. I feel safe enough and people are friendly here.
  • Great service from vendors. However need a bit more atmosphere. Drop off and pick up spot in St. John's
  • Busy downtown area, west of the center of St. John's, adjacent to piers. Major Cruise lines dock here. This is THE place for duty-free shopping with just about everything imaginable. The local people are genuine, delightful to speak with, and pleasant to be around. Overall, a great experience although the decrepit infrastructure was painfully evident.
