Barbados pass offers entry to attractions

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- The Barbados Heritage Passport, returning for the 10th season, enables visitors to see eight attractions for the price of four admissions.

The passport, available free at various hotels and restaurants, permits access to attractions protected by the Barbados National Trust.

When the passport holder pays admission fees at Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Welchman Hall Gully, Tyrol Cot Heritage Village and Sir Frank Hutson Sugar Museum, the passport is stamped to validate free admission to four additional sites.

They are Gun Hill Signal Station, Morgan Lewis Sugar Mill, the Arbib Nature and Heritage Trail and the Bridgetown Synagogue.

Admission fees range from about $4 to $7.50.

Most properties are open year-round on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
