There’s a wide variety of things to do in Antigua, so you’re never far from a fun day out with the family, or as a couple.

  • To really immerse yourself in the culture of this beautiful Caribbean island, head to Nelson’s Dockyard in the English Harbour to learn more about British colonial history.

Antigua's culture

Antigua's culture

Antigua is the ideal holiday destination if you want to learn more about classic Creole culture.

  • Although many people around the world associate the word Creole with the Caribbean, it actually refers to French-speaking people, primarily from Europe, who were born in the Caribbean. In Antigua, the term Creole can also be used to describe people of all ethnicities who were born and raised in the region.
  • African influences play a huge role in Antiguan culture. A large number of local musical genres feature steel drums, reggae and calypso beats. Calypso holds a special place in the heart of Antiguans as, historically, it was invented by slaves who were forbidden to communicate in other ways.
  • Carnival is the cultural highlight of the year in Antigua. It’s celebrated every July and August for 10 days, in commemoration of the 1834 act of emancipation from slavery. Coinciding your trip with Carnival gives you a prime opportunity to hear classic Antiguan music, see plenty of vibrant, intricately decorated costumes, and learn about the island’s history through live music, pageants and parades.
