Dynamic Bridgetown A Trading Space for All
Experience the fullness of this tropical port city, Bridgetown with me - it people, trading spaces, green spaces, heritage and more.
Bridgetown and its Garrison have been inscribed in June 2011 by UNESCO, as a World Heritage Site. Bridgetown has been a port city since 1628 and is the location of the world's 3rd oldest parliament.
Due to its strategic geographic location Bridgetown became a very important transhipment point within the Colonial British Empire; I share on the city's role in the development of the Empire's western hemisphere colonies.
Feel the experiences of city enslaved and freed as they adapted, improvised and overcame in their attempt to create a space to operate.

Oh, what a day we had with Victor! It turned out that my wife and I had Victor's undivided attention, as I was unable to convince others to join us. Victor was waiting for us as advertised, and off we went. The walking pace was comfortable, and Victor gave us a comprehensive summary of the history, culture, and politics of both Barbados and Bridgetown. We saw the accepted tourist attractions, but also roamed the back streets and alleyways to get a real "feel" for the town. Finished with a "cold one"!
