Beautiful Barbados Island Tour stopped at Codrington College which is a breathtaking retreat location and a sight to see. The well manicured grounds, sky scraping palms, ducks, swans, birds, and more animals make for a relaxing location to be part of. Very lovely place.

the drive up to the college is like a fairy tale. We stopped and bought a loaf of bread to feed the koi fish, birds and turtles in the water, my heart melts. This place has the most beautiful grounds and views! A fantasy in paradise!

WOW! My guide book did not disappoint. Our group stopped by here on our inland adventure day. Great old college, cats!, and ocean views. Beware the ducks! They follow you around at the entrance, LOL.

Codrington is simply breathtaking and tranquil. Not only is the architecture, the carvings of scriptures and other religious texts awe-inspiring, but the entrance alone is a sight to behold. With a magnificent lily pond filled with fish (and nearby wondering ducks) as well as majestic driveway lined with palm trees. Beyond the entrance and through the arches of the college... More

Its always a good thing to see the land marks and beautiful places in any country. So when my friends came with me to Barbados this past Crop over season, I drove them here to see the beautiful College. Just the entrance alone that leads to the college is an awesome view. They have a pond that has fish and... More

Stopped by Codrington College as we'd heard the grounds are beautiful and we were not at all disappointed. The lawn, pond and friendly ducks were truly impressive and they don't even compare to the beautiful architecture and timelessness of the school buildings themselves which overlook a beautiful view.

We found this to be a great spot to sit and relax on our island tour. It was extremely peaceful and a great place to have a quiet moment. This would be a perfect spot to stop and have a picnic style lunch because the compound is so beautiful.

We just happened upon this place whilst driving around and just loved its peace and tranquility. A imposing old house down a long approach drive, its now a theological college. Provided you respect their privacy and walk around quietly, you can wander around the grounds, use their benches etc and take the odd peek inside. No a 'must do', but... More

We made a brief stop at Codrington College on a day long island tour. The grounds and exterior of the building are very beautiful. Since the building is currently a seminary there was limited access to the interior. I think a brief stop is a good idea, but one shouldn't assume there will be a lengthy house tour.
