Event Details

In 2011, Bridgetown and its Historic Garrison were recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.  Dating back to 1650, the site is thought to be home to the most intact and authentic 18th and 19th century British Garrison complex in the world. 

The Barbados Garrison Historical Consortium Inc., presents a guided tour of the Garrison Historic Area.  Travel in an air-conditioned tour bus with knowledgeable tour guides.  During this tour you will learn how the history of the Barbados Garrison was influenced by Cromwell, George Washington, and The American War of Independence!  Also see where a young George Washington, in 1751, was exposed to British military strategy as he inspected the nearby ‘Charles Fort’ (1650) and ‘St. Ann’s Fort’ (1707).  Last but certainly not least, learn how the Garrison, established in 1789, became the centre of British regional defense for more than 100 years.

The tour begins at George Washington House.  Along the way, you will stop at the following historic sites:

The Garrison Tunnels
George Washington House
The National Armoury - contains the finest 17th century English iron cannon collection in the world
Charles Fort
St. Ann's Fort 
The Changing of the Sentry
