About

St. Thomas is mountainous and offers beautiful views. The most popular lookouts are Drakes Seat and Skyline Drive Overlook. Drake’s Seat was built in 1933 by Arthur Fairchild. In those days navigating the hills of St. Thomas involved traveling by horse or foot. He thought the spot where he put Drake’s Seat was a nice place for a rest. You too can take a break and enjoy the fabulous view from the famous seat!

Drakes seat was actually rebuilt in 1933, it was really built by sir Francis drake himself out of bricks and stones. He used it as a lookout to see boats coming in and would send people down to steal the loot
