Look out for the grumpy old ladies flogging tat, otherwise it's a great viewpoint for even a rubbish photographer.

the sun set view is to live for on a clear day breath taking and a nice cold drink and chill watching the sun goes down good for single couple or family to enjoy

The view was breathtaking! The food and service were great ! We came on a quiet afternoon with our guide. Our lunch was ordered in advance and was promptly ready after we took some wonderful pictures

beautiful views, full bar and apparently live music sometimes (Saturday's ??) You will not find a place with better views while eating or having a drink.

The view from Shirley Heights must be one of the most iconic, throughout the Caribbean. Looking out over English Harbour and Falmouth, the views are spectacular. Firstly you will be greeted by an amazing late afternoon sunset accompanied by a local steel band playing calypso music and not forgetting a few rum punches or hearty snacks from the BBQ. There...

We were there on New Years and so the museum was closed but there were some vendors present. The best thing however was the gorgeous overlook of English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard.

The views are amazing looking down onto the bay, English harbour where ships would take cover from storms and other warships during historic wars... the dockyard with museums and hundreds of years of history. And if you are lucky you may see dolphins jumping from the depths... Shirley heights provides wonderful views on this historic bay... take a trip and... More
