3.6
#3 of 12 in Things to do in Saint Philip Parish
Built in 1660 by one of the first settlers on the island, Sunbury Plantation House is a grand home filled with antiques, artwork, and even a collection of horse-drawn carriages. Despite a fire, the attraction still features impeccable rooms and gardens. Look for items once used by the plantation's inhabitants, see old optical machinery and sight-testing equipment brought to the site by a once-resident doctor, and view the largest collection of carriages in the Caribbean. The house also offers a restaurant and bar on site.

  • It has wonderful pictures, artefacts and well maintained furniture to show what a plantation house would have looked like many years ago. It is well worth a visit to tour the house and the grounds. There is a restaurant on the property.
  • Great place for a historic tour. Then have lunch or dinner
  • Interesting old plantation house. The house and collections of tools, cameras, optical equipment, needle work and more are very interesting. The guide did not provide much information. The buffet lunch was quite good.
  • Beautiful plantation house and well kept history. The demonstration tour here is really exciting. Great for weddings and lunches
  • Beautiful restaurant and museum. A must stop if visiting.
