Roam the chambers of the "Great House" and admire its ornate decorations, antique furniture, and items collected by the owners from all over the world. Take a tour of the grounds to see the sugar cane fields and picturesque courtyard inhabited by a pair of cockatoos, or roam the lush yards, orchards, and herb garden, filled with colorful flowers, mango trees, guinea birds, and medicinal plants. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Saint Peter Parish holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the St. Nicholas Abbey and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Very good tour. Not much mention of slavery, which is quite common throughout the island at these 'plantations', i.e. slave labour camps. Well worth seeing as it's one of the few Jacobean homes in the western hemisphere.
Excellent tour. Well worth a visit. We went round with guide Asher, who was excellent. He made the tour with some humour and a huge amount knowledge
If you like history and if you are interested in Bajan history, you have to go here! Tour guide Judy was lovely and beyond helpful (she has ordered a taxi for us). Free rum punch + tasting Definitely worth a visit! It can be perfectly combined with visiting Cherry Tree Hill as it‘s only a 5min walk from there!
Had a great time at the Abbey today. Good tour of the house and rum tasting. Big shout out to the two guys working the cafe. Really personable and good food.
Great visit! Tour was very informative and grounds are beautiful. If you purchase a bottle, highly recommend getting it engraved!!
