Trenchtown is a really nice place to visit. They have craft sales now and then and have loads of things to see. Also have some specials always going on.

In South Africa for my daughter's wedding we cam here with some of the bridal crew. Great food, great atmosphere and a great feel to it. What more can I say? It came with the groom's recommendations and we highly approved afterward!
