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

This place has the potential to be nice but why pay for a view when you can drive round the corner to Cherry Tree Hill and get a better view for free? The staff on the gate were surly rude and lazy. Nobody moved as we drove through broken barriers to tell us that there was still a charge but... More

Farley Hill National Park is an often overlooked place of interest in Barbados. There are majestic ruins on the grounds, huge orchards for lazy picnics and cliff side benches offering a panoramic view of Barbados' east coast. The grounds are well maintained, the bathrooms are clean and well supplied and the staff of the National Conservation Commission polite and friendly.... More

Nearest thing to a Zoo on Barbados. Whilst diversity of animals low they are representative of Bajan wildlife but you have the advantage of moving freely among them (or rather they move freely around you). Children would especially like it but don't trip over he multitude of tortoises.

The most beautiful dark green oasis on a hot sunny day, Farley Hill has an uninterrupted view over the island. The skeleton of the Great House remains. The restroom attendant deserves a mention, she was charming.
