Along the way you’ll be serenaded by rustling trees and waves lapping in the distance, as you make your way to Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site will take you on a journey through time as you explore the 300-year-old fortifications. The second largest construction of its type on the western hemisphere, the fortress is testimony to European colonial expansion, the African slave trade and the emergence of new societies in the Caribbean. Explore the landmark and take in the sweeping views of the coastline, countryside, and five neighboring islands.
Next, visit Romney Manor, a historic site that houses the beautiful Caribelle Batik factory and gardens, where you can explore the lush 12-acre garden set in a lovely wooded valley. Samuel Jefferson, great-grandfather of Thomas Jefferson, was the original owner of the estate.
