We Gatherin’ Barbados – On to the next one

Staying on theme for this year, we explore the new parish of focus for 2020 – St. Peter. St. Peter is in the February spotlight We Gatherin’ Barbados 2020 initiative. This is the second most northern parish in Barbados and is where you will find the historic Little Bristol, or as it’s known today, Speightstown. Settled in 1630, the moniker Little Bristol stemmed from this being Barbados’ busiest port at the time and was the conduit for sugar and other commodities going to the port of Bristol in the UK. Any visit to the island needs to incorporate the long (by Bajan standards) drive in your hired car up north to Speightstown. Once here you need to visit the Arlington House Museum, short boardwalk linking the extremities of the town, the world-famous Fisherman’s Pub, St. Peter’s Parish Church and take in the historic architecture.

St. Peter is unique as a parish in Barbados. It is the only parish which touches two coasts as the northern boundary of both the east and west coasts. If you’re staying in the north with access to a rental car, it is very cool to watch a sunrise on the east coast and sunset on the west, without leaving the parish. Even if you’re not staying on the platinum coast you can drive up in your hired car and rub shoulders with the glitterati. Follow our posts all month and see what St. Peter has to offer to make your holiday in Barbados even more special. Remember, it’s always a better vacation when you rent a car!
