Experience some Barbadian horse racing at Garrison Savannah, known internationally for hosting the Barbados Gold Cup. Horse racing on the historic savannah has taken place since 1845, when members of the British Regiment used the area to match their own horses. The club, established in 1905, has since developed into a 6 furlong (1,207 m) vibrant green track surrounded by bustling spectator stands. Refresh yourself with cold coconut water accompanied by pudding and souse, then head into the lively crowds to place a bet and feel the thrill of the race. Using our custom trip planner, Bridgetown attractions like Garrison Savannah can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

A leftover ceremony from the commonwealth days. Volunteers in amazing uniforms parade & march to drums & trumpets. Every Thursday at 12noon. Walk a little further and visit George Washington house, the only US president to visit Barbados. Then make your way to the gorgeous little Italian coffee/cafe for drinks & snacks. A lovely couple of hours.
Great horse park. It was closed at the time. Vast, lush green feilds with the Barbados flag waving in the wind.
