Know More about this tour

Enjoy a tour of one of Kingston's most highly visited historical landmarks. Devon house Mansion was built by George Stiebel, the first black Jamaican millionaire. Stiebel was one of three wealthy Jamaicans who constructed elaborate homes during the late 1800s in an area that became known as Millionaires' Corner.

While the other homes have since been demolished, the beautifully maintained Devon house, which was declared a national monument in 1990, still stands in all its historic grandeur. During your visit, delve deeper into the property's history, which dates back to the mid-17th century, when Britain captured Jamaica from Spain.

On the property you can also find a bakery, restaurant, bar, ice cream shop, and a gift and craft shop. There will be a sweet surprise for all guests at the end of the tour of the mansion.

    This tour was very educational, learning the history was amazing. The house is gorgeous and they're a lot of places to take beautiful pictures. I appreciate this tour because we were from another country and we were picked up and dropped off from and to our hotel in an air conditioned vehicle. The ice cream is amazing and they give you A LOT of it. Another experience I would definitely recommend.

    Went to Devon’s ice cream August 16, 2022 and really enjoyed the ice cream. We ordered 1 scoop but it was super big, 2 scoops would be too much. Lines were long but worth the wait.

    only 10 mins from the Marriott courtyard hotel by car. unfortunately everything seems to close on a Sunday which we weren't aware of but you can still have a look round but not the mansion as you have to pay for that. There are some little shops a pizza place and a restaurant there also, the ice cream is to die for especially the coconut ice cream, from the Marriott it cost about J$ 15:00 each way and they will return if you ask them too. they charge in J$, but if you ask them they will transfer it to US$ for you. Only gave 3 stars as I couldn't view a lot due to it being a Sunday & the pizzeria was closed which was a shame
