Situated at the island's most extreme southern region, English Harbour is Antigua's graceful and evocative historic district, full of charm and folklore. Taking its name from the nearby harbour in which the English Royal Navy established its base of operations during the 18th century, English Harbour is a centre ideally suited for boating and yachting. It is here that Anituga's Sailing Week takes place as one of the top regattas in the world with six days of challenging racing and plenty of social activities for everyone to enjoy.
Best known for Nelson's Dockyard which occupies the site of the British Navy base, English Harbour has a wealth of historic places to visit including restored buildings and other historical artefacts from the colonial period, especially from the time it was commanded by Horatio Nelson.
