Go back in time on a journey infused with island ancestors and the soft whispers of the historical buildings. Maybe it will be the mysterious burial ground, or the second oldest Parliament, or the birthplace of aged rum. It could even be the Historic St. Mary’s Church or the oldest Street. Whether it is hearing about the Father of Independence and the “Bridge”; as you move on to explore a taste of the commercial and religious spaces of the beloved Bridgetown.
A little snack helps pass the time as you get a nibble of the sweetness that makes up the people known as Barbadians. We give you a sample of this vibrant town so that you can write your story “Once upon a time in Bridgetown…”
Long before the sport of kings and goat racing, the Garrison Savannah held its own as St. Ann’s Fort.
Join the CHAT team for a visit to the Garrison UNESCO inscribed Heritage area where you will hear about early military life at this historic landmark, with its prison, hospital, and cannons.
Travel back to 1705 when the British troops first arrived and visualize the scene that was set before them. Hear stories about the forts that served to protect this jewel in the crown of the British empire, about the activities of the Garrison Savannah and its tunnels. Learn about the visit to Barbados by the young man destined to be the first President of the United States of America and see the house where he stayed. Also look at the monuments which commemorate fallen soldiers. As a finale, explore the rich history housed in the Barbados Museum.
As you join us on a visit to the northern town, Speightstown, stroll through the streets of the quaint little-forgotten town, which will reveal the punch that can be found in small packages.
Venture to see the forts of this town, see the historic buildings, hear the stories of the notable Barbadians who called this townhome. Learn about attempted battles along the coast and of the hive of commercial activity that was common to the area.
Mingle and interact with the many vendors whose families have plied their trade here for generations. Whether you join us to view secrets held in this town’s Museum or to enjoy a sumptuous dinner accompanied by a commanding view of the setting sun, you will agree that this tour was well worth your time.
