The park has lovely views to the Atlantic coast, a ruined mansion, large mahogany trees and a chance to see green monkeys (if you are lucky and quiet). This is an ideal place to take a rest from the sun and relax with a picnic. The guides are informative. Remember to take care not to touch, or sit under the... More

It's a nice place, entry fee is not too high, you can easily reach it by bus and the staff is really addicted to its job, the animals and nature. Also, they answer any question you might have. Important: be quiet - this will increase your chance to meet monkeys outside the maintained area. If you just walk by and... More

Farley Hill is a very nice place to visit for the breathtaking views! The other reviewers are right, there isn't much to do besides admiring the view and the beautiful ruins of what used a mansion. I am fascinated by architecture, including ruins, so I found the visit very enjoyable. There are a lot of tourist attractions in that area,... More

A nice place to wander, popular with the locals at weekends for a picnic. Visit the nearby forest and you are likely to see green monkeys, be careful it is not well signposted in there.

Good views from the hill top but there is rather a melancholy, unloved feel about the place. Maybe that was just because it was deserted when we went. The ruins are quite attractive but there is zero information and nothing to do here beyond enjoying the view.

Not really much to speak of here, it was interesting, but the plantation ruins are all blocked off due to their decay. They still looked cool, but not really much to see there.

I attended the Barbados Gospel festival at Farley hill Park. Its a huge place and most of it is hillside. So if you attend an event be prepared to be sitting on a hillside for most of it. I know in Barbados they say there are no mountains but this puppy is on one lol

Often overlooked by the local tour operators, this is one of the most serene places on the island. As a frequent visitor to Barbados I never miss an opportunity to spend time here. Yes Cherry Hill also has a spectacular view but this park has picnic tables and huge gazebo for events and other outings. There no food facilities so... More

After not being able to see the flower caves due to the lack of $90.00, the $3.75 we spent to visit this park was well worth it,some great photo ops some beautiful trees,and nice views.Well worth the pass through.

As we were staying in the Speightstown area this was just up the road from us so we decided to pack a cool box and some salt bread cutters and have our lunch here. Although we went by car and parked for 3 BDs (about 90p ?) there is a bus stop just outside the entrance we had used on... More
