Step aboard your air-conditioned coach for a scenic drive through the countryside to Gun Hill Signal Station. Built in 1818, the signal station was restored and landscaped by the Barbados National Trust and now houses a collection of military memorabilia. An officer at the signal station carved the statue of the lion, out of a single piece of rock in 1868. Enjoy a fantastic view of the island from here.

Continue on to Orchid World, which sits on 6 acres of land in the parish of St. George. A path winds its way between beautiful coral, rock gardens, shady gullies and ponds. The orchids are spectacular - thousands are grown in shaded houses and outside on freestanding palisades. You’ll be fascinated by the sight of orchids growing mid-air with their roots completely free of soil. Wonderful photo opportunities abound.

Continue to the Highland Adventure Centre, from here the view of the east coast is breathtaking – you’ll also see Mount Hillaby the highest point on the island. Refreshments are available for purchase at the well-stocked bar.
