“Historic location.”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

This is the place where the slaves were sold, not a happy thought, however the old buildings are interesting and the whole area is now very busy with all the cruiseship passengers coming ashore, the locals continually offering round island trips, beach trips or tours around St Johns gets a little annoying but it is their lively hood I suppose. Interesting place from an historic perspective.

“Quaint”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

Close to heritage quay this slightly more charming shopping area is also a tourst mecca but it has old world charm and some nice shops selling more island based goods including handicrafts and art, a nice place for an iced coffee and free wifi in the square.
