You can see pretty much everything in 20 minutes. It is expensive for what it is. The best bit is the parrot in the cage outside. You will get a free glass of rum that was excellent however. Family of 4 cost $170 Bajan and anyone over 13 pays adult price.

Thanks for visiting the Abbey. Unfortunately we cannot allow visitors within the distillery itself for safety reasons, but remember that between January and June when the sugar cane is ripe, you can view it being hand cut in the fields, and ground in the old restored steam mill circa 1890 - and get to chew on some fresh cane. At this time of year, our labour staff are out planting and fertilising the crop. The house is unique as it is only one of three Jacobean style architecture in this hemisphere, and built in 1658, only 23 years after the island was settled by the British. We appreciate your visit, and all proceeds go towards the ongoing upkeep and restoration of this wonderful sugar estate.

Nice tour, rum is delicious. Was able to accommodate my group of 22 people with ease. Must try the vanilla rum and the rum cake - best ever.
