Our tour includes Shirley Heights, Block House, the Interpretation Center, and Nelson’s Dockyard. You can view breathtaking panoramic landscapes from every angle.
Within a short distance of Nelson’s Dockyard, the military complex is named for Sir Thomas Shirley, Governor of the Leeward Islands who strengthened Antigua’s defenses in 1781, not after the fairer sex. At this time, Britain had lost all of her West Indian colonies except Antigua and Barbados. As a result, Antigua’s defenses were heavily armed, mainly because of its important Dockyard and its great sugar export value.
In addition to light refreshments, you are guaranteed a unique experience and a lot of interesting stories to tell.
The price of the tour is 50 USD for adults (15 USD for the national park fee, and free for children under 11)
