Go on a bus ride around the city and experience the sights and sounds from up high in a delightful bus and enjoy the open air and the wonderful views of Durban.

The Freedom Wall Site


Take a tour of The Freedom Wall which is situated next to the Durban ICC.   There are some thought provoking reminders on this wall in the centre of town.


The Old Beer Hall


102 Prince Alfred Street (Florence Nzama)

Not many people know that we have an old beer hall in the city.  Take a tour of it and the old drainage systems next to it.  This precinct is part of a revival section that is featuring a rebirth with events, markets and music.


The Old Court House Museum


http://www.durban.gov.za/City_Services/ParksRecreation/museums/Local_History_Museums/Pages/Old_Court_House_Museum.aspx

Not many people know about this museum near the Durban Main Library.  It features various rooms that take you back in time to show you historical figures, boats, old images of time gone by and even what the first shop and chemist looked like in the old West Street.   There is also a wonderful exhibition on at the moment featuring Nats Nakasa.
