Absolutely great historic place full of history. So many original old buildings still in use. We visited here as part of our tour .Some great photo taking spots here. This is a world heritage place. Now used for some very luxurious yachts and home to yacht races in the summer time . Well worth the visit. Restaurants here if needed.
A sight to behold, the best of the Caribbean and English heritage. Seeing the big boats was cool. Some touristy shopping to be had just before you go in too. The bakery was good serving nice local bakery foods.
