All reviews sugar plantation small museum worth a visit sugar industry slave trade information boards interesting place piece of history antiguan history interesting history on display island tour windmill mills slaves restored ruins
Betty’s hope was a sugar plantation, it was established in 1650 and flourished.
An historic trip worth doing, in fairness any trip that gets you across the Island is worth doing. Antigua has a lot to offer.
A humbling historical sight that should be part of everyone's visit to the island. Here you learn not only about the plantations, but more importantly about the horrific conditions that the slaves endured during those periods. May want to do this tour on your own...More
My husband is more a history buff than me but I really found this place very interesting and thought provoking. It should how slaves were treated and how far we have come and still have to go to be all truly equal.
Once again timing is everything with this historic site. We got here by hire car just before lunch and we were the only people apart from the local volunteer manning the museum exhibit which is comprehensive and we'll laid out. Very informative about the exploitative...More
An important part of history and so worth a visit. Good storyboards and it’s great that one of the windmills has been restored and restoration for the plantation is ongoing but the museum could use a few more artefacts to tell the story.
The unfortunate thing was we trusted "Michael", of "Local Tours by Michael", to take us all around the island and show us the "real" Antigua. The guy was a hack, con. When we got to this site he made it clear we were to ask...More
This historical site showed how sugar was once processed. Worth a quick stop to see. However didn't see the info center as I was more interested in the mill. People I traveled there say that an fee was required in the building
we went there early, I can't say when it opened but was there before 1030am

Betty's Hope and Devi's Bridge worth visiting? (1 Reply)
In looking at Antigua tours, some offer a 4 hr island tour, followed by some time on the beach. They also offer an extended option of adding Betty's Hope and Devi's Bridge, but to do so, this cuts into beach time. So I was wondering, is Betty's Hope and Devi's Bridge worth visiting? Granted, this is a personal decision, some people might want beach time, others not. Personally, I don't have enough information to make a decision. Hoping someone here who has been to Betty's Hope and Devi's...More

Devils' Bridge was our favorite part of the island, so I think it is definitely worth it. The strength of the waters there are mesmerizing and we could have stayed there all day. Be prepared to get wet, though. There wasn't much to see at Betty's Hope. We only spent about 15 minutes there and that was enough, but if you're a history buff you may get more out of it than we did.
