Historic Tulbagh


Travel back in time over 300 years... Tulbagh is the fourth oldest town in South Africa (after Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Swellendam) dating back to the early 1700s. Charming Church Street boasts the largest number of Cape Dutch, Edwardian and Victorian provincial heritage sites in one street in South Africa, all lovingly restored post the devastating earthquake of 1969.


Contemporary Tulbagh


Steeped in history and characteristically Cape-Dutch, Tulbagh yet offers all the modern-day comforts the discerning traveler might wish for. Nature enthusiasts, adrenalin junkies, wine lovers, families and those simply seeking peace and tranquility are all catered for.

It is one of five museums in Tulbagh – the others being De Oude Kerk, the Pioneer House, a Victorian period house and the Earthquake museum – one might even say it is the jewel in our crown of heritage buildings.
