Overnight? Stay at accommodation in East London, in Eastern Cape

Peruse through the former home of John Gately, an Irish Immigrant who was one of the founders of the municipal council and voted Mayor of East London a number of times.

The East London museum attained his house in 1966 and by 1973 it became a national monument. The House was built in 1876 and is situated alongside Queens Park in a stunning garden. This beautiful home is one storey and has verandas on three sides of the building.

When you visit you can really appreciate this humble Victorian home and admire the outstanding pieces of furniture within. A remarkable mahogany dining table lies in the home along with traditional balloon backed chairs and an old yet incredibly beautiful leather button backed lounge suite.

Almost everything you see on display inside this former home belonged to the original owners and it is fascinating to step back to this period time and imagine yourself immersed in a time long gone.
