Barbados has a population of just over 275,000 and almost the same number of British people visit each year. When England play the country transforms itself into Little England.
The Kensington Oval staged its last international match when West Indies played Pakistan in May 2005 before it was demolished and rebuilt ahead of the 2007 World Cup. There will be no international cricket there for the next two seasons. But plenty of smaller club grounds exist. Pickwick, the club who were a staple of any tour, no longer play at Kensington Oval.
Very active club scene and used to organising fixtures for touring sides. But demand is high so plan ahead.
Barbados is not short of nightlife, with most of the venues located in St Lawrence Gap and along Carlisle Bay.
Possibly the most famous of the Caribbean islands and is hugely popular with British clubs and is a superb location for a cricket tour. If you plan to tour while England are in town prices will he high and demand for fixtures even higher so it may be worth considering touring at the end of the international season.
