Full of history, we had it to ourselves, as the cruise ship passengers were leaving as we arrived. Choice of places to eat, not expensive, a couple of souvenir shops, but they seemed expensive and everything was priced in US dollars. Good place to go...More

Tread the same paths that one Horatio Nelson possibly walked all those years ago, absorb the history, breath the air(Not the same air) that Nelson and his officers breathed when they were in port, the scenery is stunning. If you would just remember to take...More

Spent a few hours here on a gloriously sunny day. It's a beautiful place, with interesting historical buildings and museum. Make sure you try the tasty local patties and sweet pastries from the Bakery, the ginger beer is to die for. Nice bars and restaurants.

Loved wandering around and reading about the history of the dockyards. Filled with little bars and restaurants in season. Nice walk out to Berkeley fort on the point

The place is UNESCO site and is well maintained. The tour guide was accommodating and informative. The place however is smal and you will just spend 8-10 mins here. Must place to see. Sightseeing is great.

We were out on a day tour and stopped in here. The view is fabulous and the history is quite interesting. This is a Unesco World heritage site and the staff were quite knowledgeable and informative!!

This is an attractive dock, with several restaurants, bars and a museum or two. The history is interesting, as this was apparently an important dock when part of the British colonies.

Not only do you get beautiful views here there is a lot of history in the Museum. The guide was very knowledgeable in explaining the area as well as Nelson himself.
