The St. Lucia National Trust has amended weekend opening hours. Starting Saturday 6th August, and continuing each weekend until the end of August, the Pigeon Island National Landmark will open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Saturdays and Sundays. If the trial period goes well, these late hours will be extended into September. Week-day hours remain 9:30 am to 5:00 pm with the exception of Tuesdays when the Landmark will open to the public at 11am. This is to facilitate regular staff meetings, training and development. Meanwhile the Interpretation Centre located in the National Trust Headquarters building has been recreated. New attractions have also recently been added to the Landmark. Kids of all ages can enjoy posing as a pirate or soldier and the more adventurous can enjoy the new “Watt a Trail” which has improved access to Signal Peak where you can enjoy superb views of the north of Saint Lucia.
The Trust is also setting up easy ways that patrons who have enjoyed their visit can contribute by donation via QR Code (linked to the website donation portal) or in cash at the Gate House.
