With the opening of a downtown retail shop, Boone Hall on Wentworth provides the only plantation tour available from downtown Charleston. Shuttles to Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens now leave daily from a convenient new location: the corner of King & Wentworth Streets.

“Visitors can now enjoy the plantation experience without a hassle – one ticket buys it all,” says store manager Wendy Wilkinson. ““We’ve been talking to concierge, tour operators and event planners about this idea for years: How can we make the plantation tour experience better and easier for tourists?”

In addition to the shuttle offerings, Boone Hall on Wentworth also offers a variety of specialty gifts and souvenirs, including a selection of Southern products – everything from local grits to souvenir t-shirts. Boone Hall Farms private label items are also sold, including an assortment of coffees, benne wafers, salsas, jellies, relishes and salad dressings. High end gift items and house wares are also available for purchase. They also carry items unique to the Lowcountry which support local artists and craftspeople

Ms. Wilkinson, a former attorney who clerked here and worked in Charleston briefly as an associate, is thrilled to have the opportunity to be back in the Lowcountry. She and her husband recently returned from Europe, where they had been living for the last few years.
