Visit the oldest Anglican Church on the island, drive by a myriad of historical and famous sites including a school for 3- to 6-year-olds, then visit an 18th century estate home in the hills overlooking the ocean. Learn about our history, plant a tree, then taste our famous Jamaican rum punch, jerk chicken, and fruits in season.

Step back in time to a bygone era of Jamaican history. Set in the hills overlooking the ocean, the Greenwood estate was established by Sir Richard Barrett in the 1600s and was prosperous over the centuries. The Greenwood Great House, built in 1800, is a Jamaican Heritage Site and is filled with authentic furniture, rare books and musical instruments, heirlooms, and historic memorabilia connecting the family’s strong ties to England.

The family’s most noteworthy member was the world-famous Victorian poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, who penned the renowned “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” It was Elizabeth’s cousin who operated the estate, and you’ll hear stories about Elizabeth and the Barrett family as you look through each room, marveling at the house’s rich history.

While at the estate, take part in planting a fruit tree to help maintain Greenwood’s forest. Plus, indulge in a Jamaican snack of mouthwatering jerk chicken, fresh fruits, lemonade, and rum punch.

Your tour also includes a trip through historic Falmouth. See structures built in the Jamaican Georgian architectural style, such as the Falmouth Court House and St. Peter’s Anglican Church.
