There’s a lot to be seen in and around the city if you have your own hire car. The Voortrekker Museum is a fascinating destination detailing the harrowing experiences of the Afrikaners during the Great Trek into the South African interior. 

Visit City Hall, an imposing brick building, more at home in the north of England, which stages regular concerts in its auditorium. Look out for details of events posted locally. Finally for more culture, visit the Tatham Art Gallery which has many worthwhile exhibits, surprising for an African gallery.
