Fodor's Expert Review Kew
This settlement includes a small school and a number of churches, as well as tropical fruit trees that produce limes, papayas, and the more exotic custard apples. Nearby are the well-preserved ruins—old cauldrons, main house structure, and other outbuildings—of Wade's Green Plantation. The fully intact ruins of a historic Baptist church sits roadside just past the modern Church of God of Prophecy as you enter the village. Kew's heartbeat is still present, and visiting will give you a better understanding of the daily life of the islanders before development; it's wonderful to see the more traditional lifestyle coexisting with the present day. Contact the National Trust to make special arrangements to view the plantation. It is usually open weekdays 10:30 to 3:30 pm.
