Romney Manor was the great house for a plantation that was once owned by the great, great, great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson. It came to be called Romney Manor in the early 17th Century when it was acquired by the Earl Of Romney.
In 1834, the estate became the first plantation to
free all of its slaves.
Today, a portion of the estate has been transformed into a beautiful garden mixing elements of the Caribbean with its tropical plants and European gardening with its manicured lawns and romantic displays.
A visit to Romney Manor is sometimes added on to shore excursions to other St. Kitts attractions such as Brimstone Hill. It is not an extensive site and can be toured in an hour.
