The gardens are beautiful and well worth the time. The only downside is that most of the plants are not native to Barbados. The story is great but if you are looking for local floral this is not my first pick.More

Hi. Your UK National Trust card allows entrance at half price. UK RHS members are free as are Barbados National Trust members. Children 15 and under are also free. Hope this helps.

Hi. You'll need to get a bus to Bridgetown and then a Bathsheba bus from the Fairchild Street Bus Terminal - Gate 6. Buses are scheduled to run on the hour, every hour. Hope to see you!
