Fodor's Expert Review Codrington Theological College

South Coast Educational Institution
Free

An impressive stand of cabbage-palm trees lines the road leading to the coral-stone buildings and serene grounds of Codrington College, the oldest Anglican theological seminary in the western hemisphere, opened in 1745 on a cliff overlooking Conset Bay. The college's benefactor was Christopher Codrington III (1668–1710), a former governor-general of the Leeward Islands, whose antislavery views were unpopular in the plantocracy of the times. You can visit the chapel, stroll the grounds, gaze at the duck pond, enjoy the view, and even have a picnic.
