The Valley

The Valley, the island’s only real town, is the geographic, commercial and political centre of Anguilla. It’s a small, rambling area consisting of little more than a bunch of mini-malls, with an administrative relocation to St Kitts in 1825 explaining the lack of colonial architecture.

But there are jewels to be unearthed, such the historical displays of the Anguilla National Trust Museum, the exterior of Wallblake House, and the design of the adjacent church which has a unique decorative stone front, open-air sides and a ceiling shaped like the hull of a ship.
