Nelson’s Dockyard, Antigua

Nelson’s Dockyard is a national park, a historic site restored from 1743; it forms part of the English Harbour area of Antigua and is also an operational Georgian naval facility.

British ships used to be repaired, restocked or disposed of here.

Marinas and boats on a backdrop of blue water always make for a lovely sight, a relaxing place to wander and meander.
