The National Trust's Open House programme runs January through March 2013.
Every Wednesday a beautiful house in Barbados opens its doors to the public to view from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.
All types of houses are on show from the grand old plantation houses rich with centuries of history, to newer luxurious Bajan-Style villas. The grounds and gardens are part of the attraction. A Bookshop, Craftspeople and Refreshments will be available.
Also at 3.15pm at each event "The Lively Little Lecture Series" will be hosted by Dr. Henry Fraser and Dr. Karl Watson.

CONCORDE EXPERIENCE, Christ Church
The Barbados National Trust in association with Goddards Destination Management Company will feature The Barbados Concorde Experience as its Open House. Special admission price of $30.00 Bds.
GOVERNMENT HOUSE, St Michael
Admission by Advance Tickets Only
Please note new date of March 13, not March 6 as previously advertised.
This splendid 18th century mansion has been the official residence of the Governor-General, the Queen’s representative in Barbados, since 1703. The building has not radically been altered since its restoration in 1898 after severe hurricane damage. Today it is a graceful, classically furnished house set in large, lovely gardens. Its grand portico and semicircular portion have been copied at such fine houses as Villa Nova. (Only the public areas will be opened)
POLLARD'S MILL, St. Phillip
Pollard’s Mill combines the best of old and new. Built circa 1722, the spacious old stone property has had many lives: as a plantation, a hotel, and a fine restaurant. A series of renovations exposed its coral-stone walls, and imparted a Scandinavian ambiance of light and space. The effect is stunning. The house, cottage, and mill wall are surrounded by 2.5 acres of gardens.
GUN HILL BY MOONLIGHT, St. George
A Friday cocktail party with a view! From 5.30pm to 8pm. Admission fees: Members $25 (Bds), BARP $25, Non-Members $30. Call 426-2421 for more information.
Open House admission prices are $20 (Bds$) for National Trust members, $25 for BARP members and $30 for non members. For directions to the properties and any further information please email the National Trust.
