Visited this old plantation. History via old film was amazing and really brought the place to life. Can taste rum here and buy it. House lovely. Had a great visit here.

Beautiful attraction in Barbados. Interesting to learn process of rum making from sugar cane to finished product. Very charming and well kept property. Cool to see bottles being engraved.

This was a nice house and garden and an interesting lesson on how rum is made, but it was fairly expensive for the experience. Skip this one if you're running out of time.
