Parliament Buildings, Bridgetown
(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Built in a Neo-Gothic style redolent of Victorian Britain, Parliament Buildings stand as architectural landmarks and make up part of a World Heritage-listed area. The two 19th-century coral-limestone structures served as the seat of the colonial parliament in the late 19th century. Today, you can tour the interior--but be sure to dress appropriately for your visit (no shorts or T-shirts). Head into the onsite museum to bring your visit alive with information and historical background. Put Parliament Buildings and other Bridgetown attractions into our Bridgetown vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
