The focal point for this trip is Nelson’s Dockyard, a cultural heritage site named after Admiral Horatio Nelson, and dating back to 1725. It’s also part of a huge National Park, and the only working Georgian dockyard left in the world. On the way to the main event, you’ll pass through Antigua’s countryside, which rolls out pint-sized villages with quaint churches, as well as views across the horseshoe curve of Falmouth Harbour. Once in Nelson’s Dockyard, you’ll be taken on a walking tour, learning about the beautifully restored buildings from your guide. When it’s time to refuel, sip a complimentary glass of rum or fruit punch. Afterwards, you’ll have two hours of free time to sightsee at your own pace. There’s a museum, an art gallery and a gift shop – as well as the swanky superyachts which regularly dock in the marina. Or, you can find a seat in one of the many local cafés or bars, and watch the world go by over a drink.
