Don't let the title fool you............... On the outskirts of St John's, Bettys Hope plantation should definately be on your 'places to go' list when on the island. Featured in a recent UK documentary, there are some great (and tragic) reminders of the struggles before,...More

This trip was very good and worth a visit, the staff were friendly and helpful, the Museum was small but covered a lot of details both via written words and photographs.

whilst it was amazing to see a restored windmill, the surroundings are in need of closer attention and i also wish the visitors would be careful not to litter

Really not worth going to. Windmills not used for over 100 years. Small exhibition of tools used for sugar cane production.

Such a serene place to visit but our guide shared the dark history behind Betty's Hope - staff treated appallingly, wore clothes until they became rags, weren't even allowed Christmas Day off - many ended up taking their own lives as they saw this as...More
