Sunbury Plantation House, Saint Philip Parish

(3.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Sunbury Plantation House and other attractions to your Saint Philip Parish trip itinerary using our Saint Philip Parish itinerary planner.

  • Take a walk through their museum, prepare ye for a blast from the past. Their well-maintained grounds are gorgeous! The staff is very knowledgeable and courteous! The rum punch will floor you...yes it will!!!!
  • Interesting place- lovely old house. Look out for the freaky dolls upstairs
  • Remarkable 1660/70 Sunbury Plantation House . Look at the walls built of local coral blocks an ballast stones the latter from the ships that set sail from England to pick up Barbadian sugar.The interior retains its plantation-era ambience. ****
  • I must go to destination when in Barbados current fantastic hospitality and food
  • A wealth of history to be found
