    seriously? $2000 ja for a 15-minute visit. 4 photos on the walls ... Two junk and a carcass that was supposed to be the car to Bob Marley. Dirty ghetto is overgrown. Only for fans of the genre and for die-hard fans of the reggae culture

    This place is a must visit for true reggae fans. This is where Bob Marley and many other reggae artists started out. Remember to bring cash with you because cards are not accepted. We did a tour of the yard with the lady who manages the place then toured the neighborhood with Blackie. It was humbling and sobering to see the living conditions of the residents of Trenchtown but very a insightful and informative tour. It was a wonderful opportunity to interact with the people of Jamaica and learn from them. After the tours we heard a few songs from a member of the band Livin Kulcha. We would have bought the CD but didn't bring enough cash. It was great to see where Bob and others came from and to learn about all the music history in this tiny town. Thanks for sharing with us

    For an authentic experience of Kingston's music culture, this is the place to visit. Authentic works of art, pottery, music and the friendliness of the Trench Town Community is unmatched. No Visit to Trench Town is complete without a visit with Roots and Herbs teacher Oswald 'Stoneman ' Comrie
