Nelson;s combines a great historical story- i.e. slaves,shanghai workers, indentured servants and soldiers built and maintained one of the key locations for the British Navy and... it is breathtakingly beautiful especially when you climb to the top and look down into the yard.

Nelson dockyard the $8 admission fee includes admission to Shirley heights plenty of taxis out side will take you up there most will pick you up and bring back at up at time you want ( pay on pick up ) please bear in mind how long it will take to get back to st Johns probably an hour and a quarter drive if no traffic and no stops on way back .Bear in mind going in and out of St Johns can be busy at certain times taxis will know the shortcuts to save time.
A good beach near Shirley heights is nearby Galleon bay beach is good for sun sea and sand and chill out before heading back.But this depends on how long you have in port ?
