Garrison Savannah, Bridgetown

4.5
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Bridgetown
Experience some Barbadian horse racing at Garrison Savannah, known internationally for hosting the Barbados Gold Cup. Horse racing on the historic savannah has taken place since 1845, when members of the British Regiment used the area to match their own horses. The club, established in 1905, has since developed into a 6 furlong (1,207 m) vibrant green track surrounded by bustling spectator stands. Refresh yourself with cold coconut water accompanied by pudding and souse, then head into the lively crowds to place a bet and feel the thrill of the race.

    Truly a very pleasing location, lots of historical significance in an area that is still modern and actively used. Nice to see this on a small island like Barbados ... Always a must see and appreciate. Catch the place on race day or just pass later for a quiet exploration.

    New monument in place, good racing facilities and a playpark for children but more can be done to improve the aesthetics.
