Gun Hill Signal Station reviews
We enjoyed this part of the tour from our cruise ship mostly for the Monkeys and Flowers. It was a small location to view the signal station and learn why it was there. Amazing and breathing views... more »
We were very impressed with welcome we received, the enthusiasm and knowledge of the site of the member of staff on duty. The station has been beautifully restored by the Barbadian National Trust... more »
A very pleasant place to spend an hour or so away from the beach. Some fantastic views and refreshments available too. Arrived by car and no problems with parking.
Very good site. Everything clean and tidy. Good coffee shop and pleasant staff.
