Luxury St. John's Holidays

Contemporary Caribbean capital

St. John's

St. John’s, Antigua's colourful capital, is perched on the northern coast of the island, covering four square miles of markets, restaurants and candy-coloured buildings. Architectural styles jostle for dominance here – the city skyline is a mosaic of bright Caribbean buildings punctured by its most important monument, the neo-baroque St. John’s Cathedral. Everywhere you turn, St. John’s is mixing vibrant heritage with an upmarket crowd, from Redcliffe Quay’s swanky shops and restaurants to the Saturday morning fruit markets. The city is fantastic for shopping (it’s big on duty-free luxury goods), and the elegant bars and restaurants contribute to an upbeat vibe after dark.

St John's is a great spot for shopping. Head for Heritage Quay for duty-free buys and traditional souvenirs, or pick up a few pieces of tropical fruit at the covered market.

When to go

Antigua’s Caribbean climate means year-round good weather. Average highs hover around 28°C in June, while the coldest month is January at a toasty 25°C. The rainy season takes place from June to November, with October racking up the most rainfall – unlike the constant drizzle we often get at home, Caribbean rain tends to fall in short, sharp bursts, usually followed by sunshine and blue skies.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Antigua.


A 10% service charge will often be added to restaurant bills, however, for good service, it’s common to leave a 5% cash tip as well. Aim for a 10% tip on fixed taxi fares and a couple of dollars for porters and maids.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Antigua is English.
