Parliament Buildings, Bridgetown

4.4
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Bridgetown
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.
