Best Of Barbados

Visit the historical Tyrol Cot House and Heritage Village, take in the views from historic Gun Signal Hill Station and stroll the paths at Orchid World. Your tour begins with a scenic drive through the city and suburbs to Tyrol Cot. The house itself, constructed in 1854, was the residence of Sir Grantley Adams, First Premier of Barbados and the only Prime Minister of the West Indies Federation, and his son, ‘Tom’ Adams – the second Prime Minister of an independent Barbados. It’s an architectural gem with an interesting mixture of Palladian and tropical vernacular.


Tyrol Cot is considered to be the birthplace of Barbadian Democracy and is filled with the lifetime collection of the Adam’s antique furniture and memorabilia. Then drive to historic Gun Hill Signal Station, centrally located in the parish of St. George for a magnificent and captivating view of much of the island. At Orchid World, the final stop on your tour, enjoy a leisurely stroll and view the displays of orchids, ferns, heliconias, hibiscus, begonias, cacti and bearded fig trees before returning to your ship.


Note: We recommend you wear comfortable walking shoes.
