Photo Shoots are Welcome!
Bringing friends and family and taking photos? Welcome! Standard entrance fees and donations appreciated from locals.
Professional Photo-shoots (using professional photographers)
Professional Photo-shoots for locals - minimum donation BD$50
Professional Photo-shoots for overseas visitors - normal entrance fees plus minimum BD$50 donation.
Unfortunately we now need to insist on a minimum donation of BD$50 for professional shoots - more if you wish!
We need to have a minimum donation as many people having professional photoshoots were not giving us anything, or giving very little - basically, as one photographer stated, they were 'taking advantage'.
Other sites charge BD$100-200 or even BD$20 per person. But we believe BD$50 is a fair donation towards keeping Andromeda open for all, especially for those locals who cannot afford to donate. Entrance is free for locals who simply walk through and/or stay and have a picnic. Many do donate. We continue to try to connect local people to our wonderful heritage by ensuring they are not denied access.
Andromeda Botanic Gardens does not receive government funding.
It does not get funds from the Barbados National Trust.
Andromeda is independently managed and developed by a tiny and dedicated team and relies on donations and entrance fees from overseas visitors to survive.
The donations pay our gardeners and keep us open and this has been the situation since August 2020.
Thank you for your understanding.
