Wingfield Estate

The first working estate on the island, this property played a significant role in the history of St. Kitts as the very first land grant made in the West Indies by England. It also has an interesting story as the current owner bought it without this knowledge and has over the last decade continued to unearth more features of the property. Guests are invited to explore this unique destination for its cultural value, but also to experience a thrill on a zip-line tour.


This stunning location consists of a sugar factory and mill as well as a rum distillery and great house, cafe and gift shop. You can learn about the property's history by touring it on your own or wit the help of a guide; there are markings and plaques that detail the estate's history as well as pay tribute to the slaves that worked the land. To add to the fun, a zip line tour run by Sky Rides allows guests to fly through the rainforest and over the Wingfield River.
