As the other reviewers state this place has fallen on hard times. A lot of history has been lost, some remnants remain, foundations of others can be seen. If you knew this place in the 60's or before you would cry now. A very few places are liveable including 2-3 guest houses and the hotel. St Anthony's and the rectory... More

What was once an imposing area with fabulous views (I know, I used to live there!) has been allowed to run down and is in a terrible state. The majority of the houses have been allowed to rot away and many are only just about standing. Only a few retain their former glory and the army has now taken over... More

It takes you back a few centuries and even without closing your eyes you can feel what it would have been like in the days of horses and carriages. Take a leisurely stroll around the streets and make sure to stop by Titchfield High School and fort. The cannon pointing out to sea reminds you that the English were determined... More

We stayed at a lovely guesthouse on Titchfield Hill. I loved living like the locals with no special frills. Miss Lorna is also a graet cook with the best breakfasts served.

Your view from Titchfield will be awesome as you are up higher that most of Port Antonio. It is a very historic area with rich and interesting stories. Stop and talk to the locals. Driving past Titchfield High School my sons found it very interesting to read the dress code posted on the entrance gate.

Went to church there. It was a warm and friendly experience. A very rural area, heard chickens in the yard of the church. They even invited us to their harvest later that week. We didnt stay so long unfortunately. Enjoyed it.

The cute houses in the residential streets are cute, local feel and our driver got us on the school grounds to see the historic place (old fort) and told us all of the history! Very cool

I read a history book on Portland Parish and am amazed how fancy the Titchfield Peninsula used to be. I really enjoyed the energy of the area though. Real people, real life.
