Owner description: The greatest of Jamaican great houses, the Rose Hall Great House has a story with all the elements of an engaging novel. Built in 1770 by John Palmer and his wife, it eventually became the residence of their grandnephew, John Rose Palmer. In 1820, Palmer married Annee, a beautiful but feisty English girl. Little did John know that his young wife possessed “black magic” powers that would eventually lead to his demise. During her reign as mistress of the plantation, Annee did away with two more husbands and countless lovers. “The White Witch of Rose Hall” has fascinated generations, and even today, there are those who claim to see Annee passing through the Great House. A candle-lit evening tour of the Rose Hall Great House is a must for visitors to Montego Bay. Your guided exploration of the former home of Jamaica’s White Witch, Annee Palmer, includes captivating and chilling stories of love, murder and mystery skillfully told by knowledgeable guides. You’re sure to feel goose bumps as these eerie tales come to life in this grand estate, where ghost sightings have been reported over the years. Tours also give historic insight into this grandest of Jamaican great houses, now beautifully restored with 18th-century decor and antiques. To conclude this fascinating adventure, you can visit the dungeon, now transformed into a tavern called Annee’s Pub. Many visitors find that the famous rum cocktail, known as “Witches Brew” helps banish the spirits of ghosts or black magic they sense still lingering in the mansion.

“Flashlight tour”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

This tour just started at night, but it was fun. It tells a story, yet they do a haunted house style show to tell the history. It was scary, fun and you could tell the people enjoyed putting on the show.

“Informative”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I'd recommend this tour to anyone visiting Montego Bay. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the grounds and house itself are amazing. Fun to walk around and imagine living there decades ago.

“Rose Hall's White Witch”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

This was a great historical tour. The guide was extremely knowledgable and very patient with us taking pictures. The song she sang at the end was entertaining. The house itself was amazing. The witch's brew served in the dungeon was good according to one of my friends that went along on the tour
