From all of the Antigua's amazing landmarks this one was definitely my favorite one! So much history and definitely kudos towards people of Antigua to keep this one alive, despite what those brutal days of the past meant to them. After seeing a few of the leftovers of these old mills on the island and hearing the stories and seeing... More

this please bring history alive. Do visit, it is going back in time and so interesting. It has been so sensitively restored and you can find so much about the history of the people on the island. Not at all a tourist memento selling place, just a please to visit and be surrounded by a peaceful environment

It was close when it was open - it takes 2 minutes to look around - such a shame as a lot more could be done. The access road is appalling!

I love that they have taken the time to restore this plantation and are continuing to do so. It's important that people know the history of this island and how far they came to gain independence. The caretaker sits in the old stable house, which contains historical facts about the plantation and a miniature model of how it looked

The mill make a perfect family photo or the cliffs make the perfect picnic spot watching the sun go down like a big rond flame going out hand slowly giting smaller and the water slashing up against the rocks just imagine it

Betty's Hope was a wonderful learning experience for my wife and I. As Black Americans, the history of slavery is important to us. Betty's Hope gives visitors a sense of the importance of cane sugar to the British economy & the use of slaves in the production of sugar on Antigua. The island has over 100 abandoned sugar mills, but... More
