Barbados National Trust The BARBADOS NATIONAL TRUST (BNT) is a charitable, non-profit body founded in 1961 to preserve the unique heritage of our island home, be it Historic Buildings and sites, or places of natural beauty or environmental importance. We are linked through our aims, goals and structure to all the international National Trusts from England to Australia.

About us
We are the premier organisation on the island dedicated to preserving Barbados' considerable architectural, historical and ecological wealth for future generations of visitors and Barbadians to enjoy.

The Barbados National Trust was formed in 1961, and has now acquired nine major visitor attractions, which we are sure you will want to visit. These range from lush, green Welchman Hall Gully to imposing Gun Hill Signal Station, perched on a hill with stunning views of the island. From the beautiful blooms of Andromeda Botanic Gardens to Tyrol Cot Heritage Village - home of one of the founding fathers of Barbadian democracy, and site of a unique recreated 1920s model village, complete with blacksmith's forge and craft shops.

See the real Barbados and learn about the wonders and mysteries of Speightstown on the Arbib Nature & Heritage Trail, or visit a working sugar factory at the Sir Frank Hutson Sugar Museum and Factory. Take in some of the most spectacular scenery on the island as you visit Morgan Lewis Mill - one of the oldest, largest and longest-operating mills in the region - or wonder at peaceful splendour of the Bridgetown Synagogue.
