Barbados looks a lot like an English heritage village transplanted onto a Caribbean paradise. Between the white-sand shores and glittering blue seas, you'll find historic buildings, a heritage railway, horseracing course, and even a cricket stadium.

    Of course, there's plenty about Barbados which is very unlike a little English village, quite aside from the delightful beaches. Barbadian culture is very vibrant and colorful. One of the best times to see the village at its best is during the carnival-like Crop Over, when musicians and revellers parade the streets in bright and sequined costumes.
