Nelson’s Dockyard - Antigua & Barbuda

One of Antigua’s most famous landmarks, Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour dates from 1745 and was home to Admiral Horatio Nelson until 1787.

It has been lovingly restored after years of decay and today these historic buildings house a museum, craft and souvenir shop, restaurant, hotels and marina. The surrounding national park includes the whole of English Harbour and Shirley Heights which can be visited from the Dockyard.
