What's Happening in St. Philip
The Parish of St. Philip or "St. Farlip" as it is affectionately known is the largest and most easterly parish in Barbados. Its main hub is known as Six Roads. This unique hub received its name because six roads extend from the roundabout, making it an easy connection point to Christ Church, St. George and St. John. Six Roads is a hive of activity offering many amenities such as restaurants, a gas station, a school, Emerald City shopping complex which includes a large supermarket, bank, credit union, post office and a few retail stores. This hub expands to offer many other services including hardware, automotive and retail stores. Most things can be found in this location if you do not want to venture into Bridgetown.
A few points of interest are Sunbury Plantation House which is a 17th century sugar estate. Sunbury has an onsite restaurant and bar which offers lunches on select days and you can take a tour to get a glimpse of Barbadian history and early plantation life.
Four Square Rum Distillery and Heritage Park is the home of Doorly’s, Old Brigand and E.S.A Fields rum. You are free to visit and explore the various stages of rum-making and tour the Heritage Park with its historic buildings, colonial architecture and folk museum.
Another point of interest is Ragged Point where one of our lighthouses still remain. Ragged Point offers a magnificent view of the East Coast of Barbados.
If you enjoy car racing, Bushy Park Barbados was redeveloped to become one of the leading racing circuits in the English-speaking Caribbean.
