When you come to Barbados do not miss Andromeda Gardens if you want to escape the rush of everyday life. Breathtaking views and an introduction to tropical flora that is unforgettable. A pleasant lunch menu and delightfully helpful staff in cafe and gardens

Thank you for your review. Yes! Andromeda is one of the greatest postwar gardens in the world, and one of perhaps only a handful in the developing world - an outstanding achievement by the great Barbadian visionary Iris Bannochie. Thank you for coming. Regards Sharon

Hi. Your UK National Trust card allows entrance at half price. UK RHS members are free as are Barbados National Trust members. Children 15 and under are also free. Hope this helps.
