Kingstown is the capital and main commercial center of St Vincent and the Grenadines with cobblestone streets, colonial buildings, and a few tourist attractions. The town is known for its churches. St George's Anglican Cathedral, an 1820 Georgian-style structure, is adorned with stained glass windows, while the 1823 St Mary's Catholic Cathedral features Gothic spires and Romanesque columns and arches.



Other popular sightseeing attractions are the St Vincent Botanical Gardens, the oldest in the West Indies, and the St Vincent National Museum, on the same grounds. High on a ridge north of the city, Fort Charlotte offers beautiful views over Kingstown and the surrounding islands. Many visitors head to the popular resort on privately owned Young Island, located about 200 m offshore from Villa Beach.
