Sunbury Plantation in St Philip, Barbados, is a restored plantation house from the 18th/19th Century. The estate was first developed in the 1600s and was known initially as Chapman’s Plantation. It became Sunbury in 1767 when purchased by two English brothers from Sunbury in England. It has been open to the public since the mid 1990s.
The furnishings of the house are all antiques and there is a unique collection of antique carriages in the cellars. There is also a very old assortment of optical machinery and sight testing equipment including the first lens grinding plant to come to the Caribbean. The gardens are small but very colourful.
