Grahamstown lies at the intersection of four very different climatic zones and its unpredictable weather is part of the excitement of the annual National Arts Festival, which takes place in the middle of winter and sees thousands of people bundled in coats, gloves and scarves, descend on the city, whose broad tree-lined streets, gorgeous historical buildings, museums and plethora of churches - responsible for its ‘City of Saints’ label - are a throw-back to the time when Grahamstown was the second largest city in the Cape.

Health and Climate:

Bring layers of clothing as the weather is unpredictable in Grahamstown.
