St Nicholas Abbey - Review
St. Nicholas Abbey, one of the only three genuine Jacobean mansions with beautiful plantations in the Western Hemisphere was purchased in 2006 with the objective of preserving the architectural heritage of Barbados. The building depicts an extensive insight of the craftsmanship, trade and culture in early times. In the house you will see priceless antiques and artifacts that are over 300 years old. Within the vicinity is a rum distillery where St Nicholas Abbey rum is produced. Explore the city’s ancientness and take a peek into the distillery while strolling around the marvelous lush green orchids and gardens. Do not miss the cherry tree hill the offers a thrilling view of the island's East Coast.

St Nicholas Abbey, Bridgetown Reviews
Wonderful tour. Great look into Barbadian history. The Warren family is doing a great job with this attraction. Looking forward to the introduction of their train tour that is going to be coming soon. If doing this tour, be sure to pop over to Cherry Tree Hill for undoubtedly one of the best views of the east coast.
You can easily take 3 hours and wonder around. Oh yeah, there is also great rum!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour! The landscape is well kept, the staff is friendly and helpful and the complimentary rum didn't hurt the experience at all! Take a couple minutes walk or drive to Cherry Tree Hill nearby.. the view is ridiculous! 😍
If you love History, Historic buildings and Machinery, don't miss this this stop!
Beautiful! And great rum! Also the fishcakes were shockingly good. The history of the plantation was played down quite a bit though and the story of the owners a little too played up for me.
