Attractions near the Premier Hotel Pretoria
The iconic Union Buildings
The Union Buildings in Pretoria are a must-see on your sightseeing itinerary of South Africa. Known for housing the offices of the president, they are an internationally renowned architectural masterpiece. Designed by Sir Herbert Baker, the buildings took more than three years to construct and are divided into three sections – the left offices, the amphitheatre and the right offices.
Although the buildings themselves are not open to the public, the surrounding gardens are a popular picnic spot for both locals and tourists. Stroll around and pass by various monuments including one dedicated to General Louis Botha, the first prime minister of the Union of South Africa. Come equipped with a camera to capture yourself against the stunning backdrop of flowers, indigenous trees and manicured lawns.
Visit Melrose House
Step back in time with a visit to Melrose House, a Victorian mansion built by Pretoria businessman George Jesse Heys in 1886. Historically, the house is known as the place where the Treaty of Vereeniging was signed, bringing the Anglo-Boer War to a close.
Visitors today can learn about this war through the numerous photographs and information on display in the building. Wander around the house’s sumptuous interior, taking in the ornate ceilings, fireplaces, stained-glass windows and porcelain ornaments. If you’re visiting at the right time, you may be able to catch one of the many themed exhibitions and workshops the house hosts each year.
