There is an obelisk sculpture that commemorates Barbadian soldiers who were killed in the two World Wars, a statue of Lord Horatio Nelson who visited the island before he was killed at Trafalgar and a fountain to celebrate the first water being piped around the city.

The Barbados Museum is located in a 19th century British prison and has displays and information relating to Barbadian, Amerindian and African culture on the island. Visitors will see a collection of paintings, maps and prints; there is also a natural history section contained within the museum.

Fantastic Villa in a great location

5 of 5
Stayed 5th-19th May (Two couples in our 50s). We loved our stay at Ridgecot, It was very spacious and comfortable and we felt at home from day one. The kitchen was very well equipped. We loved getting up each morning and sitting around the large marble table on the terrace watching the various wildlife. We also got plenty of use out of the swimming pool. We used the bbq a couple of times as it made a nice change from getting ready to go out for a meal. Tina the owner was happy to answer all our questions prior to our stay and whilst we were in the villa Esther the maid and Barbara who manages the property were available to provide answers. We didn't bother hiring a car as we found the buses frequent and cheap to use. Within walking distant we ate a couple of times at Ju Jus Beach Bar and Lone Star Restaurant and would recommend both. We also caught buses to Holetown, Speightstown, Oistins and Mullins Beach for food/drinks in the evening and found the quality was very good. Also went by bus to Bathsheba (via Speightstown) just to see the contrast of coastlines worth a visit but pleased we choose the West Coast to stay. Booked a fabulous catamaran trip online through Silver Moon a 5 hour trip with only 12 passengers we were so well looked after with excellent food and drink. We don't usually got back to a holiday location twice but I would love one day to return to Barbados and would happily look at renting this villa again. I would also recommend the villa to a friend or relative. Thank you Tina for letting your home in Barbados feel like it was our home for 2 weeks.

Fab location beautiful house

5 of 5
This property was in the most perfect location for us, it's well maintained clean and stylishly furnished with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. The house is set in very quiet surroundings and is only a 7 min stroll from Mullins beach and a garage where you can pick up any essentials night or day. Thank you Paul for letting us stay and making the process stress free and easy.
