Just reading some of the mixed reviews about Sunbury Planation House. There is so little left of the real Barbados heritage that you can actually feel and touch. The West coast is brillant but really a mega playground of beaches and restaurants. The reason to visit Sunbury Plantation House is to understand what it was like to live in Barbados in the 1600's. The room settings reflect 100% the layout and personal effects of the time.
We visited the house after lunch in the gardens, so the visit was free. My Mum re-called many parts of the house as authentic from her education in Barbados, which made it feel more real for me.
This is my 4th visit to Barbados and 3rd visit to Sunbury Plantation House, when I return to Barbados and learn that another historic building is no longer in use or burned down - ie Sam Lords Castle it make me want to visit again these buildings and enjoy the history as there may not be a next time.
It's a great stop off on a tour but i would recommend combining with lunch to really make an event of it.
