Visit: Nelson's Dockyard, St. John's, English Harbour Antigua

Nelson’s Dockyard is the largest of Antigua’s National Parks and is still used today as a working dockyard for numerous yachts and ships. Fully restored to its original splendor, the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century buildings of the Dockyard house modern amenities such as shops, hotels, and marina businesses.

In the early eighteenth century, the British Royal Navy recognized the strategic importance of English Harbour in protecting ships from hurricanes and in its position at the south of the island for monitoring French naval activity. From 1784 through 1787, the British Hero of Trafalgar, Horatio Nelson, served as the captain of the H.M.S Boreas, sent to Antigua to enforce British laws in the colonies. Restoration of the dockyard began in the 1950's, renamed Nelson's Dockyard in honour of the years he spent in Antigua.

The dockyard was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2016, Nelson's Dockyard provides many sites and activities for visitors to explore and enjoy.
