AAA Editor Notes
Farley Hill National Park borders the Barbados Wildlife Reserve. On a cliff 900 feet (275 m) above sea level, the 17-acre park provides sweeping views of the coast amid gardens and the ruins of a sugar planter's estate. The earliest part of the house, known originally as Grenade Hall, is thought to have been built in 1818. In 1856, original owner Joseph Lyder Briggs gave the property to his son, Thomas Graham Briggs. Thomas spent large sums developing Farley Hill into one of the finest country residences in the West Indies and entertained distinguished guests there. The park also is the site of concerts and festivals.
Picnicking is permitted.
