The Valley is the capital city of Anguilla. It is located in the middle of the island, near Crocus Hill, the island’s highest point. The Valley has a population of about 1000 people. The official language is English.

The Valley has few examples of colonial architecture due to the relocation of Anguilla’s administration to St. Kitts in 1825, though Wallblake House, built in 1787, still stands and is used as a rectory by the adjacent church. New shops have opened in new buildings and renovated West Indian-style cottages. Old shops have been modernized and have enlarged their stocks as well as their space.

The ruins of the Old Court House are located on Crocus Hill, the island’s highest point. All that remains are the broken walls of a few basement jail cells. At Cross Roads at the western edge of The Valley is Wallblake House, a plantation home built around 1787 that is now owned by the Catholic Church (the parish priest lives there) and St. Gerard’s Catholic Church, with its highly original façade of pebbles, stones, cement, wood and tile.

The Valley – Climate

The Valley has a tropical wet and dry climate (Aw) under the Köppen climate classification.[2] The area has a short dry season that covers the months of February and March, and a wet season that covers the remainder of the year. However, the wet season, though lengthy, does not quite see the heavy precipitation that is commonplace in other Caribbean cities such as Santo Domingo and San Juan. Average temperatures in The Valley are relatively constant throughout the year, ranging from 26–29 degrees Celsius.


There are two government schools, Valley Primary School and Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive School (secondary).

Omololu International School, a primary and lower secondary private school, is in The Valley. It was Anguilla’s first private school and opened in 1994 as the Teacher Gloria Omololu Institute. It adopted its current name on 1 April 2013. It uses the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. The name “Omululu” means “Child of God” in the Yoruba language.
