“Old World Spice Estate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This was a stop on our day tour of the Island, It was very run down and partly a ruin but the main warehouse was very intresting with a member of staff explaining and demonstrating how the spices were prepared and the history of the estate. We loved it. We were there quite early so it was not too busy but several tour buses later it was a bit crowded. We learned some intresting facts and at the end managed to buy several different packets of spices at prices that were so much cheaper than home.

“Interesting, but a repeat of Belmont Estate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

If you have a good guide, the place is interesting, but I learned the same things at Belmont Estate, which I highly recommend visiting.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

The estate was a working spice factory in the 17th century and is now a very interesting insight into the processes and uses of the many spices grown on the island. The guides show you such things as nutmeg and cocoa and explain their uses. There is no entry charge and there is the opportunity to buy some of the spices and cocoa as souvenirs.
