Dow's Hill/Shirley Heights Interpretation Center Feb 16, 2008
The interpretation center on Dow’s Hill is home to a 15-minute multimedia show, a summary of Antigua and Barbuda’s history. The show is probably not the most exciting, but is lovely and good to get an overview. An observatory point from the late 18th century was built on Dow’s Hill too. It was used to transmit a signal to St. John’s (via other observation points) in case of an attack in the southeast of the island. Of course, you can use this old observation point for your own needs too – for example to enjoy the view over English Harbour. As all places within the Nelson’s Dockyard National Park, also the entry fee to this place is included in the entry fee to the park. However, this is the place where you have to leave one – and probably the last - stab of your ticket.
