Mu­seum of An­tigua and Bar­buda Su­gar cane plan­ta­tions once dom­i­nated this peace­ful land­scape. Sev­eral of the unique thim­ble-shaped stone su­gar mills still stand as a re­minder of the his­tory of slav­ery dur­ing the Bri­tish colo­nial era. Take time to visit the small but in­tensely poignant Mu­seum, it will en­rich your visit.

Ni­cole’s Ta­ble Learn to cook lo­cal, at a to­tally hands-on class with Ni­cole Arthur­ton in her charm­ing home. Pre­pare (and eat) an en­tire meal that might in­clude roti, chicken curry, green vegeta­bles and pump­kin and lus­cious co­conut tart, with a group of like-minded strangers who quickly be­come friends. Ni­cole has an at­trac­tive un­pre­ten­tious charm and guides us ef­fort­lessly through a de­li­cious ex­pe­ri­ence.

Nel­son’s Dock­yard The Bri­tish fleet un­der Ad­mi­ral Nel­son docked here, loaded with bricks for bal­last, and left filled with su­gar for Bri­tish su­gar barons. Other ships im­ported ma­hogany trees for the mas­sive boat re­pair yards and palm trees that grow ba­nanas and sweet pineap­ple. Some were slave ships with “cargo” from Sierra Leone.
