In the 1830s, Leamington House was the seat of a plantation that stretched down to the sea. In the 1950s, Oliver Messel stayed there and was so enthused that he persuaded his friends the Heinzes (of Heinz ketchup fame) to buy it, with the lure that he would decorate it. Some of his furnishings still hold pride of place in this timelessly elegant home.

Directions
Leamington House is located on Highway 1 (a.k.a. the west coast road) 1 ½ miles south of Speightstown. It is between Cobblers Cove and St. Peter’s Bay. Watch for Open House parking signs.

The Barbados National Trust Open House Season, which has been a 'must do' on Barbados' events calendar since the 1960s, continues in 2019 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 2019 will also feature live music, cultural performances by local schools, beautiful handmade Barbadian craft sold by artisans and many more enjoyable surprises!
