The Pretoria east suburb of Lynnwood is one of several tranquil leafy suburbs to lie within the arc of the N1 as it swings past Pretoria. Lynnwood is situated just beyond Hatfield in line with Brooklyn and Waterkloof in a series of old fashioned neighbourhoods.
The upmarket suburb of Lynnwood is typically tree-lined, its pavements home to large and graceful homes, peaceful gardens and wide streets. Staying in Lynnwood is ideal for access to the University of Pretoria, UNISA, CSIR and its convention centre, Menlyn shopping centre and the malls of Brooklyn and Hatfield. It has a wide array of restaurants and coffee shops from which to choose, and getting around Pretoria from here is fairly easy. Travelling into the centre of Pretoria to visit the number of museums, monuments and old buildings is easy and an entire morning can effortlessly pass in this way. Stop for tea at Melrose House just across from Burger’s Park.
The CSIR, virtually up the road from Lynnwood, is one of the leading scientific and technology research and development organisations in the continent. Close by, the National Botanical Gardens deserves a visit. The gardens are quite exceptional and the paved nature trails navigate the gardens easily, making your visit a fascinating one. There are numerous cool spots under trees for picnics and a restaurant for tea.
