This colourful post is from my visit to Antigua last month during the Caribbean cruise with PO cruises.
Antigua is a small country, a Caribbean Island famous for its 365 beaches, so as its habitants say, they have a beach for every day of the year.
We arrived to St John's the capital with a population of 90,000 people, it stands at the head of a spacious bay on the north-west coast. This bay is over 3km long and its entrances is guarded by two forts: Fort James and Fort Barrington.
Here some views of the arrival.

You can enjoy of a picturesque drive through lush vegetation, including mango, bananas, coconuts and breadfruit.
The most famous attraction of Antigua is Nelson's Dockyard in the English Harbour. In the beginning of the 18th century it was a regular use by the British men-of-war, Nelson was appointed to the station in 1784. By the way, Lord Nelson was from Norfolk, the region in England where I live :)
The English Harbour is equipped with The Old Admiral's House (now a museum), mast house, blacksmith's shop, engineer's office, canvas and lumber stores.
