This trip puts Cockburn Town under the microscope. You’ll begin with a scenic drive on an air-conditioned coach. You’ll see Duke Street with its 17th and 18th-century architecture. Roof styles here have been compared to the icing on cakes. Your guide will draw your attention to the 200-year-old Freeman House and the Turks Head Inn, which has been serving ale since 1840. At this point, you’ll get off the coach for a walking tour. You’ll stroll along Front Street, passing the Victoria Library and the Anglican Church, where people have been worshipping for more than 2 centuries. You’ll pop into the National Museum, where your guide will point out the most important exhibits. One of these will be the Molasses Reef Wreck, the oldest European shipwreck to be discovered in the western hemisphere. Before you return to the ship, you’ll be left to your own devices for a while. Duck into the shops for souvenirs or grab a conch fritter to-go.
