We took the combined Railway / Great House tour and we thought the railway trip was very interesting. The engine driver gave a history of the railway on the island which was very entertaining. The Great House guided tour was quite interesting although restricted to downstairs

A great trip on the restored heritage line up to Cherry Tree Hill station for a great view of the island’s east coast, plus a few market traders before the return to St Nicholas Abbey. Combine a visit to the railway, the house and distillery.

Hi Paul, Thanks for coming back to visit with us and we are pleased you enjoyed your day with us and the new Heritage Steam Train. The train does also allow visitors a chance to view parts of the Plantation which were previously inaccessible. And yes, plans are afoot to expand the track in a few years. As you will appreciate, there hasn’t been a Railway in Barbados for more than 85 years, so the feat was quite massive!!! We look forward to seeing you back again to visit sometime.
