Welcome to
Linden & Around

Historically a bauxite-mining town, Linden’s attractions stem from its vantage location. The town is the gateway to the central rainforest region. As the second largest town in Guyana, it houses several interesting museums and heritage sites. The Linden Museum of Socio-Cultural Heritage is particularly good at throwing a spotlight on the Indigenous life and the bauxite history of the region. Linden’s industrial heritage comes alive in the Christianburg Waterwheel. This was part of a hydro-powered sawmill to increase logging efficiency. Stroll through the town to gaze at the remnants of the colonial architecture in St. Matthew’s Church, Watooka House and St. Aidan’s Anglican Church. Linden is also home to the Blue Lakes which are very popular with the locals.
