Bridgetown’s busiest and arguably best time to visit is during the winter months, particularly from December to March. This is the time of year when temperatures reach the high-20s on a fairly consistent basis and the climate is much more steady. It is also the perfect opportunity to escape the cold of the UK and enjoy some well-deserved winter sunshine. Bridgetown is a popular summer holiday destination as well, so any time of year that you book you can expect to have a great time.
Being the capital city of Barbados, there is an abundance of incredible things to do and see in and around Bridgetown. The city is famous for its rum distilleries, with Mount Gay and West Indies being the two most popular that offer tours and tasting events. Scuba-diving is an extremely fun activity to take part in just off the shores of the city. Programmes, training courses and equipment rental are all available to explore the reefs and wrecks around the coast. Head towards Garrison Savannah and St. Ann’s Fort for a glimpse into the city’s colonial past.
Despite being the only city in the country, Bridgetown is actually quite limited in terms of accommodation options. This is because many visitors to the region opt to say in the beach-strip hotels to the south or along the west coast and then commute into the city. There are, however, a few select hotels to choose from in the centre. If you are looking to dine out in the city, there are plenty of high-quality restaurants that serve traditional Caribbean food as well as international favourites for the more picky travellers.
