Click here for Grahamstown Accommodation

Known as the 'City of Saints', Grahamstown is home to at least 40 religious buildings, which sprung from the evangelical fervour during Grahamstown's heyday.  Another story why Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape is called the 'City of Saints', is because in 1846 Royal Engineers in need of building tools sent word to Cape Town requesting a 'vice' be sent to Grahamstown. The message sent back read, "buy vice locally", the reply to which was, "no vice in Grahamstown" - hence the nickname 'City of Saints'.

Grahamstown is also known as the Eastern Cape's 'Settler City', due to the skilled British settlers who were instrumental in crafting Grahamstown into the magnificent city it is today. Reminiscent of Victorian style London, the exquisite examples of Victorian and early Edwardian architecture of churches, schools and homes throws one back to the mid 1800s.

'Student City' is another name for Grahamstown, as thousands of eager minds flock to the Eastern Cape, Rhodes University, renowned for it's generations of academics. Rich in education, arts and culture, Rhodes University's six faculties including Humanities, Commerce, Law, Science, Education and Pharmacy lay the foundations for our future leaders. The students bring Grahamstown to life with their eager enthusiasm, then during the July winter holiday most head for home outside Grahamstown, and the young, lively vibe is replaced with yet another influx, this time artists and performers and visitors who gather for the annual Grahamstown National Arts Festival, a 10 days celebration of dance, theatre, comedy, music, art exhibitions, workshops and tours. Accommodation in Grahamstown should be considered way in advance if you wish to attend the Grahamstown Arts Festival.

Another popular annual event is the Grahamstown SciFest Africa, which takes place during the first term of the year, attracting thousands of tourists to Grahamstown. This popular Eastern Cape science festival comprises 600 events such as lectures, workshops, interactive exhibitions, theatre, field trips, laser shows, quizzes, a film fest, tours and Science Olympics. Scientists are invited from all over the world to share their work and inspire the youth to create a new mindset about science, by demonstrating that science is very much a part of our everyday lives.
