About these ratings

Originally owned by a British Loyalist, this 18th-century cotton plantation is now mostly in ruins. But its proximity to downtown Provo makes Cheshire Hall one of the most popular historic sites in Turks & Caicos. Sparse signs on the property tell the plantation's story as visitors wind through trails of Provo history. The plantation's most notable spot, the Great House, sits atop a hill and provides sweeping views of the island.

For those who seek both history and nature, you'll get a two-for-one at Cheshire Hall, where the trail signs label native plants like Guinea Grass and Cow Bush. And for more context, make sure you have a tour guide. "After a small entrance fee a guide can take you round a prepared trail to see some of the remaining cotton plants and how they were harvested," said one TripAdvisor reviewer.

Guided tours of Cheshire Hill plantation are offered for a small admission fee by the National Trust Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
