The High Commissioner of the United Kingdom to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean is the United Kingdom's foremost diplomatic representative in Barbados, and in charge of the UK's diplomatic mission in Bridgetown, Barbados.

As fellow Commonwealth realms and members of Commonwealth of Nations, diplomatic relations between the United Kingdom and Barbados are at the governmental level, rather than between their Heads of State (Queen Elizabeth II is head of state of both). Thus, the countries exchange High Commissioners, rather than ambassadors.

The Barbados High Commission also covers several other nations in the Eastern Caribbean including:

  • Antigua & Barbuda (Since June 2008);
  • The Commonwealth of Dominica;
  • Grenada (Since 2006);
  • Saint Kitts & Nevis (Passed from Antigua to Barbados in June 2008);
  • Saint Vincent & the Grenadines (Since 2007);
  • St. Lucia; and
  • St. Vincent and Grenadines.
