  • Overview

    In 1625 Holetown was where the first British settlers landed and named the city, in honour of their King, Jamestown. The commemorative monument to their landing records the date erroneously as 1605. Holetown is located on the wealthy west coast of the island and is a town of firsts; the site of the first plantations, the first Governor’s residence, the first law courts and the first church, St. James Parish Church, erected in 1628, one year after the first permanent settlers arrived. Each February, the town remembers the settlers with the Holetown Festival, a colourful and lively event of crafts, music, police band concerts and a vintage car rally. Holetown has a superb pink tinged beach, and inland the Chattel Village Shopping emporium, more modern malls selling duty free goods and a fine selection of beachfront restaurants.
