Sunbury Plantation House, Saint Philip Parish
(3.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Sunbury Plantation House and other attractions to your Saint Philip Parish trip itinerary using our Saint Philip Parish itinerary planner.

  • Interesting place- lovely old house. Look out for the freaky dolls upstairs
