Wallblake House, built in 1787, is the oldest and only surviving plantation house on Anguilla. It is one of the few plantation houses in the Caribbean where the entire complex of buildings including the kitchen, stable and workers quarters have survived virtually intact. The Wallblake House Trust is maintaining the complex so that it may thrive as a center for cultural, social and educational events for the entire island community.

Although this serene tiny island is popular for its pristine beaches, if one is inclined to take a break this old heritage plantation house is well worth a look with its white picket fence. Adjacent to this one also can admire the riverstone facade of the tiny chapel. One can take a minute to admire the tree sapling planted in... More

The story behind this historical place is very interesting. It is a great place to visit as a tourist with the right guide to educate you about this site.

We peeked through the windows. Not open. We returned several times and never opened. :( Should have a listing of times they are open. Nothing on the windows and no signs.

After visiting the salt pond, I passed b this building, i guess a piece of Anguilla's history, there was no one on site for a tour and the building was closed, seems to be kept up in appearance, not too far from this building is a lovely flower shop and garden, a must see.

I should have liked to give this more stars, as it's a fascinating building, but on the day we visited staff were setting up an exhibition - we're grateful we were allowed to see round, but we didn't get the guided tour which is really needed as there is no on-site interpretation.

Trip advisers commentary sums up the place perfectly, but felt i should mention it can be found on the edge of The Valley, which is Anguilla's capital, blink and you will miss it but is just by the small roundabout which has a facility to tell the time and temperature (when working) there is adequate space for parking, and anytime...
