- St John’s, the capital today has become the fiefdom of the jet set. Unavoidable, the Anglican cathedral is dominated by its two twin towers of 70m high, first constructed in timber in 1681 and then rebuilt in 1845.
- The Musée d’Antigua et Barbuda installed in the 18th century Palais de Justice recounts the history of the islands through the centuries, life-size reconstruction of a habitat of the Arawak Indians.
- On the south side of St John’s, on Friday and Saturday mornings, do not miss strolling through the aisles of the coloured and lively market.
- To the southeast, the English harbour Nelson's Dockyard, the former naval base of Admiral Nelson in the sugar cane era, has become today a marina for a multitude of yachts and boats. This important site carries a significant cultural heritage.
The construction of this naval base, now perfectly preserved and restored, dates from 1725. Nelson’s Dockyard was the headquarters of the naval fleet of the English islands in the 18th and early 19th century. This is the only naval arsenal of the Georgian era.
