Shore Excursion - The Historic Garrison and its Museum - A Military Story

Are you craving a historical military-based adventure in Barbados? Have you ever wondered what military life was like during the colonial period? Then boy have I got a story for you!

"I was here to defend this gem of an island and it was nothing like what I would have expected as a soldier. My story is bittersweet, but nonetheless, has to be told. I want to tell you about the prison and the walk of shame I had to endure. About the services offered around the 'Savannah' and all the joys that can be drawn from this area despite the hardships that have made it what it is...."

Join us on this journey back to 18th century Barbados as the life and times of British military occupation in Barbados are brought to life. Learn about the barracks, the hospital, the forts, the cannon collection, the prison and even the court martial site before visiting the house where George Washington stayed! A little snack helps pass the time as you are transported to the Barbadian military Garrison of 1705.
