Visited Barbados five times in five years and always avoided this as thought it might be a tourist trap. Stuck high in the hills it is difficult to find but lovely when you do. I'm no gardener but really loved the trees and plants. It was deserted and peaceful with irritation from tour guides. The monkeys rounded off a great... More

This stop was one of the stops on a tour we took. It was interesting, but a little creepy. My boyfriend had a field day with his camera, so to him, it was quite enjoyable. The highlights were being there at monkey feeding time and climbing up to the highest peak and seeing the view of the Atlantic Ocean.

We toured the Gully after seeing Harrison's Cave, which really works nicely, since the Gully was once a cave but caved in many years ago. The setting is really beautiful, and you see not only very dense foliage, but also the remains of what were once stalactites from when it was a cave. Our tour guide was also a wealth... More

Perhaps not worth a purposeful trek out to unless you are a true arborist but it was a great juxtaposition to the rest of the island. It was cultivated originally for fruit for the plantation owners as the island was aggressively sugar cane planted. As a consequence it is a lovely gulley walk (with no views other than trees and...

We visited here after a long day visiting Andromeda garden, Hunte's gardens and the Flower forest garden, but were pleased that we did as each is different and all are interesting. Welchman hall Gully is in some ways more 'natural' than some of the others, being created out of a natural gully. There's a clear paved route to follow and... More

If you visit Harrison's cave, visit Welchman hall Gully next door. Lots to see especially if you are a nature and plant lover.

We took a visit to Welchman Hall Gully and did a self-guided tour around the gully. We missed feeding time, as we read it was 10am, but actually was 10:30am (from memory), but there was no sign advising what time it would take place. The gully itself though is worth a visit with lots of interesting plans, and a very... More

We have enjoyed this gully a few times over the years. Always fun because it is always growing and changing. Worth the drive to get away from the city and enjoy a special place

Early Sunday morning April 10 2016. We were the first in the park and had a spiritual time. With only the sounds of different birds, monkeys, and a slight breeze, we enjoyed our stroll thru this beautiful gully. The occasional drop of moisture and the pristine air, and hundreds of different plants, made this a walk to remember.

Of the places we were going to visit in Bardados, this was at the bottom of my list. But what a pleasant surprise! It was fascinating. We had already been to Harrison's Cave which I'm glad we did first. The gully is part of the cave that has collapsed and a beautiful forest has grown there. The plants are marked... More
