I am so impressed by this place. Stunning views and amazing attempts to keep the place maintained. Recent vandalism of the Rhodes statue is indeed a shame....how counterproductive it is to deface these places.....regardless of your political views.
Cecil John Rhodes was a mining magnate and politician, and after his death money was collected by public subscription to erect this memorial in his memory. It is set on the grounds of the University of Cape Town, on the slopes of Table Mountain, overlooking the Cape Flats out to the Hottentots Holland mountains. Whilst it is very impressive, you... 更多
We had a few minutes to kill on our way to the airport so thought we'd have a quick look. The view is great and the memorial is impressive. We didn't try the restaurant. I'd say it is worth a quick look if you are passing, but not a must see.
Everytime I visit Cape Town I go to Rhodes Memorial and drag everyone along with me. One if my favourite places to go, the view is exceptional and really makes one appreciate everything that you see in front of you, the historical value and the magnitude of it all leaves me in awe eveytime. Really sad they defaced Rhodes, hopefully... 更多
The views from Rhodes Memorial is almost of the whole city. Scones and tea has always been the thing to eat at the stone cottage restaurant, where one is also able to sit outside and enjoy the scenery
This Cecil Rhodes monument still stands. Whatever history tells us about the man - and it wasn't all good or bad - he certainly had a vision even if he did get distracted by those shiny diamonds at Kimberley. You'll get a great view over and beyond Cape Town from this vantage point as well as some great photo opportunities.... 更多
The Rhodes Memorial is well worth a visit. Only 10 minutes out of the city near the University. Lovely cafe for coffee or a good lunch. Portions are BIG. Very friendly staff and great views of the city and docks.
A very impressive monument to Cecil Rhodes overlooking the University of Cape Town. The stone lions are impressive as is Rhodes atop his horse. The drive is wonderful with trees hundreds of years old. Was not crowded the day I was there. Students recently forced the University to remove a statue of Rhodes from the campus. I imagine the monument'... 更多
I agree with others the vandalism is a shame and a sign of recent times but the memorial is interesting and an important part of Cape towns history. The views are also wonderful.
This attraction has been damaged as Rhodes is no longer 'politically correct' with young people. However, the damage is slight and the view of Cape Town from the monument is breath-taking
