How to Get There
Romney Manor is located in Old Road Town on the west coast of St. Kitts, about a 20-minute drive from the capital of Basseterre. Drive or take a taxi. Parking is available on-site. There are no public transportation options.
When to Get There
The manor is open daily, from morning until early evening. Peak season runs from December to April, during which time the biggest event of the year, National Carnival (also known as Sugar Mas), ignites the island in the run up to Christmas and New Year. For a more quiet time, visit between May and July when crowds dwindle and temperatures are not as hot and humid. During hurricane season, July to November, there may be limited ships and ferries.
