• Heritage Quay St John's


St John’s

St John’s is the largest town in Antigua and at the heart of island life; a vision of colourful architecture offset by the deep blue sea. Wander past pastel-coloured shops and weathered houses with corrugated iron roofs to Heritage Quay and browse duty-free shops, upscale souvenir stores and farmer's markets. Drop by at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, which hosted matches during the 2007 Cricket World Cup, and Fort James, standing at the entrance to St John's harbour.Then, head for the National Museum of Antigua and Barbuda; a small museum detailing the island’s history through exhibits and photographs. Continue east on Long Street to view beautiful St. John’s Cathedral. With its beautiful baroque towers, the cathedral was designed with a pitch pine interior encasing the freestone structure to protect the building from earthquakes and hurricanes.
