Getting around Bridgetown could not be easier. The city has a regular set of bus services which take travellers all around the city and beyond. The main bus terminals are the Princess Alice and Fairchild Street Bus Terminal which are situated to the West and the East of the city centre respectively. There are seven main highways in Barbados, and all of them begin either in Bridgetown or very nearby. That makes it a fantastic base from which to explore the rest of Barbados. If you won't be driving from the airport to the city centre after your flight, then a great option for getting all of your luggage to your hotel is the local taxi services. Taxis in this part of Barbados almost always take the form of minivans that are available for private hire, meaning that a number of people can travel together with all of their luggage without having to squeeze. The Grantley Adams Airport is close to several excellent hotels and restaurants. The White Sands Barbados Hotel and the Palm Paradise Guesthouse and Apartments are particularly well reviewed, for instance, for their delicious food and exquisite rooms. The Grantley Adams Airport is situated just over eight miles from the centre of town, meaning that it is very close to all of the main attractions of the city itself. So why not search for a flight to Bridgetown now so that you can see the Parliament Buildings, or pick up some simmering street food (seafood is a particularly renowned local option) in the town.
