Worth a visit to see the historical centre of town and the nice buildings there. The centrality and free wifi attracts a lot of people which brings a nice vibe to the area. You needn't allocate more than 30mins to this area to see everything....More

If you are a fan or old classical at architecture, then you will love the views of this place.. The grass is well kept, the people are friendly and you can sit on a branch and quickly finish a book.

This square in the centre of Pretoria is surrounded by nice buildings, mostly banks. Not much atmosphere, lots of homeless.

This place could be nice if people didn't litter everywhere. Nice buildings ( post office, bank) but so much trash and garbage on the grass. No one seemed to care about that, lying on the grass☹️😤😤. Ne need to go there.
