Tour Details

Setting out from downtown at approximately 11am, your guide will lead you on a walking tour of the interesting points in the city, many located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Historic Bridgetown.

A few of the highlights include a photo stop at Nelson's Statue (which predates Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square in London), St. Mary's Church, a beautiful Georgian church which is one of the oldest on the island (consecrated in 1827), St. Michael Cathedral (originally consecrated in 1665, and then rebuilt in 1789 it was elevated to Cathedral status in 1825).

You will also see the Synagogue. Originally built in 1654 by Dutch Jews escaping persecution in Brazil, it was destroyed by a hurricane in 1831, was rebuilt, fell into disrepair and was sold in 1929. In 1983, the Jewish community purchased the building and restored it to its present state. It is now a Barbados National Trust protected building and an active synagogue. The Public Buildings (houses the third oldest continuous parliament in the British Commonwealth), Hero Square, Queen's Park and The Swing Bridge (1654) will also be seen. The walking portion of the tour is approximately two hours in length.

Following the tour, you will be treated to an included lunch at the Jolly Roger Pub which may include steak, chicken, fish, macaroni pie, rice, vegetables, salad, wraps, or pasta. A rum punch or soda is also included.

After lunch you will have free time in Bridgetown.

Please note: Visiting inside religious sites is based on activities at the site. During church services on Sunday, the cathedral is only seen from the outside. The synagogue cannot be entered on Saturdays and on other days may require an invitation.
