Sunbury Plantation House, Saint Philip Parish

Specialty Museum · Museum
Built in 1660 by one of the first settlers on the island, Sunbury Plantation House is a grand home filled with antiques, artwork, and even a collection of horse-drawn carriages. Despite a fire, the attraction still features impeccable rooms and gardens. Look for items once used by the plantation's inhabitants, see old optical machinery and sight-testing equipment brought to the site by a once-resident doctor, and view the largest collection of carriages in the Caribbean. The house also offers a restaurant and bar on site.

  • The website doesn’t seem to have been updated and they were closed when we stopped by on Jan 4. Definitely call to confirm they are open before you head over.  more »

  • Beautiful to visit. You can walk around the house and see what everything looked like back in the day. I also really enjoyed looking at their plants around the house. The plants are very different from what I usually see in the eastern USA.
  • Well preserved and interesting look into the sugar plantation history of the island. The house has many antiques and historic artifacts. The place tells a story and is well run and maintained. Scenic drive to get there too.
  • Very well restored and beautiful plantation house with extensive furniture and artefacts. Good and well informed tour guides to talk you through its history. Operated by the national Trust of Barbados. Good restaurant and clean facilities. Highly recommended.
  • Good picture of what the past was like for a privileged few. Lots of artifacts for you to view. Very good on cameras and optical paraphernalia (a previous owner was an optician). Good restaurant as well. Popular, especially with tours and cruises so choose visiting time carefully.
  • Beautiful place but the tour guide spoke so fast and went so quickly through the house that it was hard to enjoy the experience and to e justice to what could be seem
