Peak at the old capital of Plymouth and explore forgotten spaces on Montserrat


Get a breathtaking view of the Buried City of Plymouth from Richmond Hill. Once home to many families, the houses are now in ruins but the beauty of the landscape is still captivating.
The tour will stop at the famous Runaway Ghaut where you can enjoy a drink of Montserrat's natural spring waters which many believe have mystical powers.
From Runaway Ghaut you will travel to the Montserrat National Trust and tour the Botanical Gardens, where you can learn about the flowers and other fauna which many residents still use daily. A stop at the Montserrat Volcano Observatory follows so you can be enthralled by the powerful imagery and sounds of the history of the eruptions which began in 1995.
