Overview

You might hear this garden before you see it; its delightfully eccentric owner,Anthony Hunte BCH, plays classical music throughtout the garden. this is the working end of old Castle Grant plantation, where sugar cane was once processed into syrup. Step through the gate and you'll soon tread on the old weigh bridge, where loads of cane were tallied. Just past the old stone outbuildings, where statues lurk among exotic plants, you'll find yourself on the lip of a great, hemispherical sinkhole in the limestone substrate. Steps lead down and paths branch out through an exquisite profusion of flowering plants, with towering trees around the edges. Both here and farther along the top are a series of small secret gardens, where you can sit to absorb the serenity and enjoy a picnic. Be sure to climb the upper level steps to Mr. Hunte's house, a transformation of the old stables. He'll invite you for refreshments-including his legendary rum punch or freshly made lemonade (for sale)-on his glorious, antique studded verandah overlooking the garden. If you're lucky, he'll tell you tales, and you will surely leave with some of your own. If you're driving, follow the red and white signs that read Hunte's Gardens, from all over the island. Or, come by taxi. If you take the local bus from the Fairchild Street Bus Stand in Bridgetown it's #5 Sugar Hill Bus - Bds$2 each way.

We visited these wonderful gardens on a whim and were very glad we did. They are simply astonishing. Stunningly beautiful flowers and with beautiful music playing you can meander to your hearts content.

The pictures do not do this garden justice and I still can't believe such a small team created this and maintain it. Absolutely beautiful, peaceful and definitely worth seeing.

Didn’t expect much, but my words and our photos can’t possibly do this place justice. What an oasis! Easily spent 2 hours meandering through the pathways, and really enjoyed sitting down for a beverage with a Anthony himself. Great experience!

This is a marvel. Everywhere you look there is something to enchant you and cake a cold drink and a chat with the owner Anthony is a real pleasure.

What a surprise. This experience was so lovely. We visited because of trip advisor recommendations and were so pleased we did. The garden belongs to Antony, assisted by one gardener and the lady who takes the admission fee. It is small, lush and delightfully non-commercial....More

There is a reason Hunte's Garden has a five star rating, if it was possible to add more stars just for this attraction, I'm sure many would, myself included. The entrance fee is $30BBD (I think) and for the experience you get, it is an...More

I think you could do both Hunte's Gardens and Harrison Cave in 1/2 day and do both of them justice. They are close together so driving time wasn't an issue. Personally, we rented a car so we weren't limited by a tour, and... More
