I had read a lot about St Nicholas Abbey before going. $45 Barbados to get in. Building a steam railway which opens 21 January 2019 which should be amazing. Your money gets you a guided tour, of the house (down stairs only), a film made...More

If you like your rum then this is a must. Great little production tour and excellent tasting session. Staff very friendly and Simon (one of owners sons) was a laugh during the tasing session. Expanding with a train next year also.

Beautiful old buildings! We were there for hours exploring the grounds. We went for a nice walk in the gully and gardens, had a perfect light lunch after the tour and rum tasting. We meet the owners son, and had a lovey chat with him!

A lovely experience into rum making in every aspect. Nice tasting also. Nice café area if a little on the expensive side but so is the rum, reassuringly so! Well worth a visit

Not really worth a special trip at that price. Good if you hire a car and include it with other attractions.

The place is relatively small. I got the feeling people came and left in an hour. We took a much more relaxed approach; we were lucky to jump straight into a tour, then wandered into the taste session then onto the veranda... More
