A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants and Businesses in Wellington, South Africa

 

Wellington is a historical town steeped in tradition, situated in the Western Cape province.  Lovers of the outdoors and certainly wine will enjoy visiting Wellington where so much is offered to its visitors.  Nestled at the foot of the Hawequas Mountains, Wellington is etched in beauty and only a 45 minute drive from Cape Town making it easily accessible to tourists.  

tourist magnet of today, the town has grown rapidly since the opening of the Bainskloof Pass in 1853.  This Pass is one of the oldest in the country and connects Wellington to the Tulbagh Valley, Ceres and Worcester.  The pass was built by Andrew Bain and is a national monument as well as the starting point for some great hiking trails.

A notable feature with spectacular architecture is the Dutch Reformed Church which dates back to the 1840’s and is worth the visit.  Wellington is also known to be an academic hotspot with the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and the Huguenot College located here.

For wine lovers Wellington is the place to be, offering 2 large cellars and various wine estates, all within a small distance of each other.  The Wellington region is famous for its fruit especially apricots.

Wellington has no shortage of accommodation options from guest houses on the surrounding farms as well as bed and breakfast and self-catering units.  With it being part of the Cape Wine Route, wine tasting is the first attraction for those to the area.  Wellington also has superb hiking trails with excellent views over the valley.
