Barbados Sightseeing Tour: Hunte's Garden and St Nicolas Abbey
Visit Anthony Hunte's masterpiece garden which is one of the most beautiful spots on the island. Then stop in Bathsheba and Morgan Lewis Windmill for photos. Continue on to Cherry Tree Hill for another photo stop before moving on to St Nicholas Abbey.
One of the many names Barbados came to be known by was "Little England". What could be more British than a garden and a great house? Visit Anthony Hunte's masterpiece garden- a sink hole that has been transformed into one of the most beautiful spots on the island.
A visit to Barbados will not be complete without a stop in Bathsheba, famous for its breathtaking beauty and pounding surf. Following Bathsheba there we will make our way to Morgan Lewis Windmill. The windmill is on the top 100 endangered historical sites in the world. Then we will continue up the hill to Cherry Tree Hill where we will take a short photo opportunity stop before moving on to St Nicholas Abbey.
St Nicholas Abbey is likely the last remaining authentic plantation house of the 17th Century that exists anywhere in the "New World". When this residence was built around 1658 of brick and limestone, many of the structures in the North America were made of timber, and have long since perished. The residence was built only 30 years after Barbados' settlement by the British in 1627. The Plantation produces award winning rum and they are always delighted to offer you a sample.
