Gun Hill Signal Station, St. George is the largest and most important of the military outposts in Barbados, with military associations from at least 1697. In the Militia Act of that year, when it was known as Briggs Hill, it was named as one of the four points where guns were to be placed to give alarm in the event of an invasion, so it is likely that the name Gun Hill goes back nearly 300 years.

Lovely views. Good history about the island relax place to have a nice drink and snack. Bartender is very polite and knowledgeable.
Very awesome. Saw green monkeys playing! To cool! Beautiful view, huge statue of a lion,explains Gun Hill. But only if you know Latin!
Excellent view of the majority of the island-a must see along with a rich history which takes one back in time
Beautiful, a must see in Barbados, one of the most breathtaking views ever!! 10 stars
Will be very cold when the rain falls, otherwise great views. Wow.
A nice piece of Bajan history but not a great deal to see. It was cool that one can see most of the island from the tower including the cruise ship port.
Beautiful view across the country side of Barbados .Breath taking views
A really nice place to get really nice views of the surrounding areas.
Historical location with a picturesque view great for weddings, wedding receptions and parties. It boast a well stocked bar, a gazebo and a gorgeous balcony deck that overlooks the St. George valley. A wide variety of foliage adorns the well manicured gardens. The bathroom facilities are in immaculate condition. Because of the slope of the land at the facility i wouldnt necessarily recommend it for persons in wheel chairs. Adequate parking provided. A must visit.
Situated in the center of the island of Barbados, in the green fertile parish of St. George. At almost 800 feet elevation with fantastic views of the Southwest and West coast of the island. The Bridetown cruise terminal can be seen from here. The station is one of 6 that was built in 1818 in response to the 1816 slave revolt. A must visit for any military history follower as a small convalescent hospital was attach there and was part of the military hospital when the British were station here in the colonial period. A must visit once you are on the island.
Beautiful venue amazing view and atmosphere. However the service was awful. Most of the staff seemed to be green with not a clue what to do. Pity!
Beautiful historical place. A must visit and you get a spectacular view of the island from the top.
The only thing that I didn't like is the fact that the lion and the station are separated. I would recommend that if you decide to go there you drive because from the lion to the station Is a good walk.
