The Wildey House of Barbados was built in 1760 and throughout history was mainly a private estate. However, in the late 1990's the house was transferred to the Barbados National Trust, who made the house their headquarters. After painstakingly restoring the house to its original 1760's state, visitors can now explore the house and take a look how life was in the old Great House.
Visitors will be able to explore a variety of rooms furnished with beautiful and authentic mahogany furniture, historic memorabilia, and other items that would have been used back then. In addition, the property can be rented for parties, dinners, and weddings.
Wildey House is located in St. Michael Parish, ensuring those staying in this part of Barbados will have the benefit of easy site access throughout their trip. If you want to stay somewhere within easy reach of this historical site, you'll find a decent selection of lodgings to choose from nearby.

Island staples like playing a few holes of golf and heading to the beach are also widely available here. Vacationers who enjoy testing their ability at the golf course, will want to do so at the nearest golfing facility, which is Rockley Golf Course. If golfing isn't your thing, you're not out of luck - head to Accra Beach, which is the closest coastline to visit. But, many other beach and golf opportunities are situated in the region. Historic site visitors will encounter plenty of indoor places to visit in this general vicinity. You'll find a couple of spots worth checking out - and Banks Brewery Visitor Centre- each of them situated within a couple miles of the historic site.
The Wildey House has normal business hours of 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday.
While there is no fee for gaining admission into the Great House, donations are happily accepted.
