I have been before on my first visit to Antigua with a tour. It's an interesting place and depending on how much you enjoy history you could spend up to an hour there. There are picnic tables, but no restaurant or cafe which is a shame. We were hungry and so didn,t stay as long as we would have liked.... More

We visited here on the way through to English Harbour. The site is not developed and its simple to see the layout of the buildings from the time that this site was one of the largest sugar plantations on the island. The mills are brilliant - you can go into one - its all been restored - but the museum... More

Very interesting place to visit and reflect on Antigua's past. The menfolk were particularly interested in the workings of the mill - and the fact that they were made in England.

Betty's hope is a favourite attraction in Antigua. Photos nearly always show the wind mills. However, the associated museum provides an appreciation of the dangers of crushing, the dangers that slaves went through to create the Sugar Barons.

A wonderful experience that is continuously being updated and refurbished. Sadly, it prospered as a successful sugar plantation during the era of slavery but Betty's Hope gives you a peek at the hardships (and successes) of the peoples of Antigua as well as the sugar industry.

Betty's Hope is an old sugar plantation on Antigua. There is a small museum with a lot of history. It is very informative and well worth a visit. There are also many old and worn down buildings. It is quite interesting to learn about the history of this place.

This was a old sugar plantation. You need to give a small donation to look around . The windmill was really nice. You kind of walk around by ourself.
