  • This is a very important cultural space for reggae music and Jamaica in general. It helps us to understand the life and times of Kingston that created the music we appreciate today. As Bob Marley lived at that address, it holds special significance as he is a leading figure in the music of that period. The VW bus that was featured in the Babylon by Bus tour is the highlight, but it could be argued that it needs to be preserved.
  • We just toured the building as we were on a bit of a budget and we didnt want to fork out for the whole trench town area tour. The tour wasnt very informative and was only about 15 mins in whole. The area is interesting to see when driving through (a whole other world from the rest of jamaica) and it's nice to see where bob lived in his teens. We listened to the reggee band who who were pretty cool but we didnt purcase their cd. (Who uses cds nowadays? -maybe the should look into getting on itunes or something) but we anyway gave a tip for their efforts. After that we were escorted off the premises and was refrained from taking more photos as the tour was now over.
  • The people in the vicinity tends to be hospitable
  • The Trench Town culture yard is an heritage site, home of Reggae music, this is more the rustic part of Bob Marley life, and rich history
  • 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
