Now set on the grounds of one of Jamaica's most popular resorts, the Rose Hall Plantation attractions is whittled down to the infamous Rose Hall Great House.

The story goes that after 50 years of Rose Hall being in the Palmer family, John Rose Palmer and his new wife Annie, took over occupancy of the residence; but Annie had a dark secret: she was a witch! Annie and her alleged black magic would lead to his death as well as the death of two more husbands, including too many lovers to name, naming her the White Witch of Rose Hall. Still today, people claim that she haunts the great house.

Offerings

Rose Hall has capitalized on the captivating tale of the "White Witch" by hosting haunted tours within the house, sharing Annie's story and guiding visitors through the house. Each tour ends with a trip to the dungeon, which now serves as a pub that sells a rum cocktail called Witches Brew.

The Great House Day Tour is a guided walking tour through the house. Here you will hear the Rose Hall legend and view the historic furnishings with hopes that Annie will make an appearance. You can also try the Witches Brew, which will hopefully relax you. You can also view the beautiful tropical gardens.

The Great House Night Tour is a haunted tour through the house, where you will also hear the legend, but perhaps find your nerves a bit more uneasy. You might want some Witches Brew on this tour as well.

In addition to the tours, you can also book the entire property for an event. Just make sure to call well in ahead if you plan on booking an event here.
