How to Spend 1 Day in Kingston

How to Spend 1 Day in Kingston

Even with just one day in Kingston, it's possible to get a feel for the city’s arts, culture, and history, with time to hit up museums, see public art, and even do a little shopping. Here’s how.

 

Morning: Godfathers of Reggae

Make a beeline to the Bob Marley museum on Hope Road, housed in the former home of the famous reggae artist. The museum is only accessible by joining a guided tour (included in the ticket price), and you can prebook your admission to guarantee a spot. From the museum, it's a quick walk to the newer Peter Tosh museum, dedicated to the famous Wailer. Tours that include visits to both, with stops at other reggae-related sites such as Trench Town, are also available for those who want to spend a whole day devoted to Jamaica's best-known cultural export.

 

Afternoon: Kingston Arts

In the afternoon, head south to the National Gallery of Jamaica to see its extensive collection of Jamaican and pan-Caribbean art, including works from Edna Manley, such as her celebrated sculpture,Negro Aroused. From here, it's a short walk to Emancipation Park, which boasts an extensive mix of temporary and permanent public art installations; the most famous, Redemption Song, takes its name from a Marley classic. Art-focused walking tours often include both stops and are great for those who want to save time and learn about the local art scene from a guide.

 

Night: The Kingston Night Market

If at all possible, try to arrange your Kingston visit to include a Tuesday night, when Kingston Night Market—just south of the Bob Marley Museum—operates. Here you find all sorts of locally produced arts and crafts for sale along with live music and plenty of opportunities to try local cuisine. Guided tours that include hotel transfers are also available, and having a guide can be useful in helping you to navigate the market, learn about island cuisine, and understand local bargaining practices.
