Alternatively, persons may use the small car park adjacent to the orange building on Hinks Street (near Agapey Chocolate Factory) at a fee of BBD $1.00 per hour (or part thereof). Please note parking charges are subject to change and may be higher.

Arrival and entry requirements

Please wait at the front door for a security officer who will ask you the purpose of your visit. You will need to provide a form of identification (e.g. passport, driving licence or Trident ID) which they will write down in a visitor log book. You will be asked to place your belongings in a tray and to walk through a metal detector. Afterwards, you will be able to collect your belongings and join either the receptionist or cashier queue, depending on the nature of your business.
