President's House

Much like the White House in the United States, the President's House is the official residence of the president of Trinidad and Tobago. Originally built in 1876, the house has served as a governor's residence, a museum and art gallery, the governor's residence once again, and finally the president's quarters.

What to Expect

While the President's House serves as the private residence of the president of Trindad and Tobago, it also has an official capacity as well. From the neighboring Botanical Gardens, visitors can view the house whenever they choose. Private tours are sometimes granted as well, allowing glimpses of the red-carpeted Grand Staircase, the Long Room and Dining Hall, the Great Hall, the Sitting Room, and more.

Built between 1873 and 1876, the President's House features Victorian era colonial architecture, and is comprised of mainly iron and steel.
