Fine houses in a near-urban setting have their own special charm and reveal another Barbadian way of life. Newlands, the oﬃcial residence of the Central Bank Governor, is a prime example. Set in the comfortable, sylvan suburb of Pine Hill, it is furnished with antiques, some of which came from historic Wildey House. Its garden is a lovely place to explore and relax.
The Barbados National Trust Open House Season, which has been a 'must do' on Barbados' events calendar since the 1960s, continues in 2018 with a showcase of some of Barbados' most historically interesting and architecturally magnificent private homes. In addition to 'lively talks', narrated by some of Barbados’ most well-known historians and architectural aficionados, the Open House Season 2018 will also feature live music, cultural performances by local schools, beautiful handmade Barbadian craft sold by artisans and many more enjoyable surprises!
