About the Tour

Troyeville was once the home of artists, architects and activists, and it’s a suburb with a rich history dating back to 1889. Nowadays Troyeville is inhabited by residents from a wide variety of African countries, each bringing with them a distinctive flavour. Highlights of this tour include a visit to the Living Artists’ Emporium, David Webster’s house, Gandhi’s house and the Troyeville House. Plus there are beautiful churches and other buildings from the early 1900s to enjoy.

We depart The Troyeville Hotel at 09h30. There is secure parking at the back of the hotel, and don’t forget to arrive a little early if you’d like to order coffee and a delicious pasteis de nata before we leave. From there, we’ll enjoy a stroll around New Doornfontein and Troyeville, ending up back where we started by 12h30. You may like to round off your tour with a delicious Portugese lunch at the Troyeville Hotel (booking advised) or a visit to the fabulous Victoria Yards.
