Historic Tour of Road Town

Tortola is the largest islands in the British Virgin Islands. It has the largest population and its main commercial activities are in Road Town, the capital. If you arrive by cruise ship, this will be the best place to start your sightseeing tour of Road Town and to do some light shopping.

Road Town represents the heart of the BVI. A stroll down Main Street is very informative and very entertaining. Starting at the ferry terminal near the center of town, across the street is the Sir Olva Georges Plaza and the General Post Office. This structure was built in the mid-1800s and is still operational.

Turning right on Main Street you will discover quaint shops and old buildings with stories to tell. You will pass the Virgin Islands Folk Museum. Located in a quaint wooden building, the museum houses interesting displays of both the natural and human history of the islands. Mid way on this historical route stands the old prison.

The primary language is English, although there is a local dialect. Spanish is spoken by Puerto Rican and Dominicans.
