  • Overview

    Situated on the southerly tip of Antigua, the English Harbour is steeped in colonial antiquity and naval history.

    Admiral Horatio Nelson was a resident of the harbour and as such he has been immortalised with the naming of the Nelson Dockyard. Today, the dockyard has been wonderfully restored and is a rare example of a working Georgian dockyard.

    English Harbour now flourishes as a centre for luxury and holiday yachting as well as being a point of historical interest.
