Sunday Morning Well - Road Town

Road Town Tortola, BVI

Perhaps our most meaningful, historic site in the British Virgin Islands, is the Sunday Morning Well. This was where a large majority of slaves learned of their long awaited freedom from slavery!

A bronze plaque commemorating this solemn event simply states:

"On August 1st, 1834, the Proclamation of Emancipation was read in the territory of the Virgin Islands proclaiming 5,133 Negro slaves free. This historic site, popularly known as the Sunday Morning Well is one of the sites where the order was read, abolishing the English plantation slavery system."

Since slavery under British rule was finally abolished, nine generations of British Virgin Islanders have been born into freedom and self determination.

Today, the BVI's are recognized as one of the most affluent of all Caribbean nations and Road Town, Tortola is testament to advancements made. Whenever I drive into town, I am amazed by all that is here. When you consider the entire population of the Islands is less than 25,000 people ... its really quite remarkable!

Just a little ways down the road from Pusser's Outpost is the Road Town Ferry Terminal. A short distance west of the Ferry Terminal (3 minutes by taxi) is Road Reef Marina, home to both TMM Bareboat Charters and Conch Charters. The PUB is located dockside, next to Conch Charters and the Royal BVI Yacht Club is directly behind TMM.

Fort Burt Hotel & Restaurant is across the street from the marina for those wishing to stay at a handy spot overnight before or after your sailing holiday.
