Again Being nosy, we saw the sign , an drove up the road to Bettys, On the day we visited, it was free, And worth a drive by, to see the rebuilt wind mill, Quite impressive. The rest of the site looks knackered, So Good job it was free.

There is honestly not much to see here. A couple wind mills remain which you can visit as well as the ruins of the homestead. If you like to see such things then check it out!

Definitely worth the walk-about, learned a little of the history of the island. Unfortunate period of history with the exploitation of slaves for 300 years. Reinforces how cruel a period of time it must have been and makes one appreciate the life we have today.

There is a small museum/information centre here which gives a short history which is mostly sad and shameful detailing the British use of slavery in order to produce its wares. Don't need more than 20 minutes here.

We drove right up there.It was quiet.There was a good signed display with a few artefacts .There is clearly still a lot of excavating to be done. All visitors interested in where they are holidaying should come here.

A snapshot of what life was like in the now obsolete plantation. Lovely setting giving one a feel for the area. Excellent museum with historical artefacts . Well worth a visit.

We visited this historic site on our own. There was a small tour group there when we arrived but when they left we were the only ones there. The history is very interesting and the whole site could be improved tenfold if there was some investment by the Government. There is a small museum and two sugar mills, one restored... More

You get a feel for what a sugar plantation during the slavery era would have been like, some of the original buildings are intact and there is a small museum with a lay-out model of how the area looked one or two centuries ago, $2 entry, very good !

We visited Betty's Hope as part of an island tour and had a lunch BBQ here. The museum at this location has a great wealth of knowledge and detail regarding the history of sugarcane plantations on the island.
