Visited on a very quiet day so was able to wander on our own after a brief introduction with a local guide.
Museum has decent information about the English, Admiral Nelson and the dockyard.

Beautiful setting, wonderful history, lovely food and drink! We have never been during Antigua Regatta but can only imagine how amazing it must be with all the gorgeous yachts moored in the Dockyard. I could find nothing to dislike.

Very picturesque with a lot of history. Nice to see some Canadian yachts in the marina. Would like to have tried Papparazzi Restaurant but we were on a boat.

This was a nice stop on our tour driving the island. Most of the restaurants were closed as it was the off season. The best part was the sail making shop. Fascinating! You will need no more than 90 minutes.
