Attractions near The Great House
Go cave tubing
While tubing in some countries is best left to the party animals, in Belize it's often a way to see the countryside that's mixed with a historical element. Several tour companies base themselves in Belize City, so you can easily find one with an itinerary to suit you near The Great House.
One of the most popular tours goes along the Belize River and through caves, with a tour leader who'll teach you about the ancient Mayan use of these spaces. For the more adventurous, these tubing tours can be complemented with a stretch of zip lining.
Visit historic Government House
Just across the river from The Great House is one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in Belize City: the former Government House. Built in 1812, this house was home to the representative for the Queen of England in her colony.
Nowadays, the building is used as the House of Culture Museum. The museum has lots of pieces showing life in early Belize, as well as artwork by local citizens and storyboards written by the Governor General's wife about surviving the 1931 hurricane. The museum is open to visitors from 9am to 4pm every weekday.
