Central Travel Guide

Stunning Central Hil - This exciting area is presently undergoing a massive revival spearheaded and funded by The Mandela Bay Development Agency to the tune of R80million for phase one. This is the historic heart of Port Elizabeth and is well worth a visit. The emphasis here is on the Arts and the area around Bird Street has already been upgraded to include several art galleries and some coffee shops which are a welcome addition to the area. Dessies Coffee shop and deli can be found at the top of Cuyler Street behind Artec Art Gallery. The historic row of Donkin Houses are at present being renovated and are visited by tourists from all over the world. This terrace of beautiful Victorian Houses is a must while visiting Port Elizabeth. The Donkin Reserve is situated close by and offers many sites of interest as it is dedicated to the years Nelson Mandela was incarcerated and his long road to freedom. Also situated here is the largest Flag in Africa. Right opposite, you will find the grand old King Edward Hotel which has also undergone a complete refurb by the new owners to the tune of several million. A stone's throw away, Fort Frederick stands overlooking the whole of Algoa Bay and was built in the 1800's.is also a site of interest. In Lawrence Street several antique shops can be found in addition to a new addition La Boca Artisan Bakery and Coffee Shop. Central is definately worth a visit apart from the convenience of being close to all amenities including the city hospitals, the airport, cinemas, and shopping malls.
