|About these ratings|
Located in the capital city of The Valley, Wallblake House is one of the oldest buildings on Anguilla. Many choose to forego visits to this now tiny complex, but other travelers say it could be a worthwhile visit for you if you like history; Wallblake is the only standing plantation home left on the island.
The 1787 construction of the home is normally attributed to a sugar planter named Will Blake (notice the name resemblance?), but changed hands several times over the years. Nevertheless, the house and grounds have been fairly well-maintained, and tours of the place take you through the plantation's kitchen, stable and slave quarters. You can schedule a visit to Wallblake on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. Tours are free, but additional donations for the house's preservation are encouraged.
