This location has views to die for, and what a wealth of history awaits the visitor. Stunning views are everywhere, and I would recommend this to anyone, even without the rich historical circumstances

Was part of a group tour and we were not overly excited about the Dockyard stop but turned out to really really enjoy this. A bit of island history, some pirate stories, some technology, and beautiful yachts to dream about sailing away on. A short visit was all that was needed for a non-boat person. If you are really interested in boats, you would probably want more time then we had on our visit. There were people who were very obviously thrilled with what they were seeing.

Stopped here with our Pink Panther Jeep Tour. Beautiful stop. Wish we had more time to look around and maybe sit for a drink. Will have to spend a day here next time we are in Antigua!

We visited on a recent visit to Antigua and were very impressed. Spotlessly clean very well tended with fabulous boats and yachts to see. Plenty of viewing areas all attractive. Certainly a must on a visit to this beautiful island

The fact that Nelsons dock yards exits from the times of the Pirates and British rule and discovery of the Carribean. Shows you a time of history of expansion not to mention the construction of a port in that time. As well as the cost in human strife. A glimpse into a past of Human history that you walk through smell touch and touch in the setting of Island life. Then to come forward to see it still in use by those of means by the sailing vessels of today. Worth a step back in time....
