You might hear this garden before you see it; its delightfully eccentric owner,Anthony Hunte BCH, plays classical music throughtout the garden. this is the working end of old Castle Grant plantation, where sugar cane was once processed into syrup. Step through the gate and you'll soon tread on the old weigh bridge, where loads of cane were tallied. Just past the old stone outbuildings, where statues lurk among exotic plants, you'll find yourself on the lip of a great, hemispherical sinkhole in the limestone substrate. Steps lead down and paths branch out through an exquisite profusion of flowering plants, with towering trees around the edges. Both here and farther along the top are a series of small secret gardens, where you can sit to absorb the serenity and enjoy a picnic. Be sure to climb the upper level steps to Mr. Hunte's house, a transformation of the old stables. He'll invite you for refreshments-including his legendary rum punch or freshly made lemonade (for sale)-on his glorious, antique studded verandah overlooking the garden. If you're lucky, he'll tell you tales, and you will surely leave with some of your own. If you're driving, follow the red and white signs that read Hunte's Gardens, from all over the island. Or, come by taxi. If you take the local bus from the Fairchild Street Bus Stand in Bridgetown it's #5 Sugar Hill Bus - Bds$2 each way.

This tropical garden is set up in a gully or a large sink hole. Trees are protected and reach great heights, particularly palm trees. It is a place where to relax while admiring plants, there are many cozy spots with seats for a pause. Gentle...More

We enjoyed our visit to the garden. However, Anthony was not there, but we wondered round and enjoyed the flowers and wild life. It was very peaceful. Would have liked to have seen the house too, but as Anthony was not there, we were not...More

This is a garden which is like being on a piece of land overgrown with different flowers, shrubs and trees. It is not huge, you can walk casually around it in about 40mins but if you are interested in plants or just want to relax...More

This tropical garden is a masterpiece. It is really nice to walk around on the narrow paths and to listen the birds. The admission price is 15 USD (30 BBD).

Nothing much to look at from the outside, but inside it's beautiful. All the plants, flowers and trees are so healthy and kept tidy. There is a sense of calm as you wander round tiny paths through the greenery.

Hi, we did this with a trip to Welchman Gully as well. We had about 45mins in the garden, but I could have spent hours in it.

Hi, Not sure of the position of your hotel but taxis are best unless you feel like using the bus, great fun. Enjoy the gardens.
