      You’ll marvel at the Old World elegance of this former British colony, which spans Georgian, Romantic, Victorian, Vernacular, and International styles. Despite centuries of hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes, the city retains many of its charming architectural details such as ornate fretwork, solid hurricane shutters, and enticing verandahs.

      Among the many sights that you’ll discover are the Fish Market, with its constant bustle off the vibrant Market Street. You'll enjoy the leaf-shaded grounds of the Cathedral because the structure itself is under renovation. Soak up the exotic atmosphere of picturesque streets where the West Indian Vernacular still enhances many shops and homes.

      Lastly, The Museum of Antigua and Barbuda invites you to explore displays of local pottery and basketry and listen to explanations of the local ecosystems, and stone tools from the Archaic Age. You’ll also find enlightening details on local plantations, once rooted in slavery, before becoming the modern enterprise that they are today.

      A Word about Antiguan History

      Words like hurricane, hammock, tobacco, barbecue, savannah, and canoe, all derive from the language of the Taino, who were the original settlers of the island. Later colonists included the Spanish, French, English, and even Americans from the mainland. Antigua became a British Colony in 1667 but did not gain full independence until 1981.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 24 hours of requested services.
