The Valley
The Valley is the capital of the island in the Caribbean, a British overseas territory. The city lies in a valley at bay Crocus Bay on the island's north-western part and has approx. 2000 inhabitants.

The center is bordered by around The Quarter in the east and George Hill to the west. There are a few historical buildings in town, the Anglican St. Mary's Anglican Church, the old wooden Miss Marjorie Hodge's Homestead and The Warden's Place, the ruins of the Old Court House on Crocus Hill. In addition, the museum "Anguilla Natural Trust Museum" on the island.

Just outside the town is the farm Wall Blake House, built in 1787, which is still used as a rectory to the church nerliggende St. Gerard's Catholic Church.

Some new shops have opened and some old shops have been modernized and renovated in the West Indian style.

The ruins of the old Court House is located on Crocus Hill, the highest point. All that remains is the ruined walls of a basement prison cells. At Cross Roads on the western edge of the Valley's Wall Blake House, a plantation home built around 1787 which is now owned by the Catholic Church (parish priest lives there) and St. Gerard Catholic Church, with its highly original facade of pebbles, stones, cement , wood and tiles.
