Take in some of Antigua’s best vistas and discover the historic and charming Nelson’s Dockyard as part of a small group

Keen to find out about local culture and heritage? Get a snapshot of the island’s history, from the Amerindian era to the present day, by watching an intriguing 15-minute multimedia presentation at Dow’s Hill Interpretation Centre.

At Shirley Heights, marvel at the mesmerising bird’s-eye view over Galleon Beach, English Harbour and almost the entire east coast of Antigua before you drive down to Nelson’s Dockyard. You’re free to explore this quaint colonial-style village at your leisure, perhaps taking a look in the museum, souvenir shops, or art gallery.

What better way to round off this experience than with a cooling rum punch at the Galley Bar? Sip away as you watch the yachts bobbing peacefully in the sun-drenched harbour – absolute bliss.
