Know before you go
  • Tour guide recommends that the visitor carry at least US$ 20 for the purchase of memorabilia/gifts.

  • You will learn about some key players including naval officers, slaves, plantocracy, colonial government, churches and the Kings Negroes. Interestingly, after the slave trade was outlawed in 1807, some traders continued slave trading and so, the British navy was charged with the task of policing the seas to capture those daring traders. What happened to those unsuspecting captive Africans who were brought to the Dockyard? You will visit some special places of interest in and around the dockyard. You will find that, undoubtedly, English Harbour, the home of the much-feted Nelson's Dockyard, is indeed an evocative historic district.
