There is a great historical walk of Bredasdorp that you can do starting at the Tourism Bureau (youíll find that itís more-or-less in the middle of town). The buildings themselves are historical and the garden worth a walk through, even if itís tiny by garden standards.

Head into Church Street after going up Clarendon and youíll pass the Dutch Reformed church (it really is beautiful) and on towards the pretty Shipwreck Museum in a thatched building.

It is worth a visit to the Shipwreck museum, particularly if you have boys in your family, as it records almost every shipwreck since 1673 - and there have been a lot off the Cape Agulhas coast of the Overberg.

After the museum follow Independent Street up to the mountain and roughly three blocks later turn left into Hoop. Along here is the Old Jail, a beautiful stone building, whilst other architecture along this road is worth noting, especially as buildings are built right up against the street - you will notice this in some of the little alleys in Napier too. Turn left into All Saints and you will see the beautiful Anglican Church, built in 1863, and then back into Church Street.
