St Nicholas Abbey Tours

22 Reviews
St Nicholas Abbey

The distinctive Dutch gables and red roof of the St. Nicholas Abbey plantation are no historical pastiche. Built in 1660, the beautifully restored mansion is one of only three authentic Jacobean buildings in the western hemisphere.

Inside, the plantation’s great house boasts a Chinese Chippendale staircase, antiques, porcelain and much more, viewed on a free guided tour.

The sugar plantation surrounding the mansion includes a historic processing plant and the rum distillery that produces St. Nicholas Abbey Rum. Watch a documentary from the 1930s to learn about sugar plantation life, visit Cherry Tree Hill for lovely views over the island’s east coast, try a glass of rum punch, and stay on for lunch at the Terrace Cafe.

St. Nicholas Abbey is in the parish of St. Peter at Cherry Tree Hill, near the northern tip of the island.
