Few blocks away on the corner of Long and Market streets is the National museum in the oldest building of the city,the colonial Court House(1747) on the site of the former market.
We forgot our desire of culture and spirituality and went shopping.St John's,Antigua's capital and only real city of around 40 000 inhabitants attracts many locals and many tourists from the close resorts and from cruise ships which dock in its harbour at Redcliffe Quay and Heritage Quay several times a week in season.Many former warehouses have been attractively restored as small boutiques and restaurants with duty-free shops(Heritage Quay).But for us, the old streets' shops with an authentic feel near the market were more attractive.
