British traditions and place names continue to abound: afternoon tea, a passion for cricket at the Kensington Oval and monuments to historical figures such as Lord Nelson will all have a familiar feel to them.
The beautiful surroundings are rather more exotic though - sleek yachts moored in glitzy marinas, long golden sand beaches to laze and wander on and palm trees swaying in the warm breeze make Barbados one the most idyllic Caribbean holidays.
Away from the beaches graceful plantation houses dot the island’s lush interior, oozing charm and history, whilst remnants of Barbados’ lush and diverse jungles can be explored in hidden ravines such as Welchman Hall Gully.
The dramatic vistas of the wild east coast, fringed by the Atlantic Ocean, reward those who choose to head further afield.
