Walmer, a rather posh suburb of Port Elizabeth with its wide tree lined streets, is something of an establishment - a number of the city’s oldest families live here, and businesses too are lining up for their share of the large homes, as parts of Walmer fall into demarcated business zones, particularly on Main Road.
Walmer’s origins are as a farm that was later sub-divided - the portion known as ‘Muller town’ renamed to Walmer after the Duke of Wellington, who died at Walmer Castle, which goes some way to explain its links with older, more established residents of Port Elizabeth, some of whom could have been here since the 1850s. Aside from its obvious beauty, staying in the garden suburb of Walmer has a number of advantages: the airport is five minutes’ away; beaches are 10 minutes’ drive from here, and you’re walking distance from Main Road and the Walmer Park Shopping and Entertainment centre, also referred to as the ‘cosmopolitan centre’, due in no small part to its up-market quality.
The Walmer Country Club, with an 18-hole golf course, the Little Walmer Golf Estate, which has a 9-hole course, and the Humewood golf course are all close by, and the Baakens Valley offers walking and jogging trails. Tours of the nearby Walmer township, which usually include a visit to the youth centre and dinner with a Xhosa family, followed by the odd choir rehearsal, are just some of the advantages of staying so close to the city centre; that and the fact that Walmer acts as a feeder to the entire coastline of the city.
