Step back in time to Tobago’s colonial plantation era at the Richmond Great House, one of the oldest surviving plantation houses on the island. The original plantation dates back to 1766, and it fell into various states of disrepair over the intervening centuries. Today the restored estate house has an international art collection, with ornate wooden and brass from Africa and Asia. The house sits proudly atop a hill surrounded by fruit trees, offering enviable views of the surrounding jungle and the whitecaps of the windswept Atlantic.
The Richmond Great House sits along the Windward Road about halfway between Scarborough and Speyside. It’s about a 20-minute drive from either direction.
