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

Visit the historical site of Fort Glamorgan in East London, named after the Earl of Glamorgan. Established in 1848 along the Buffalo River, this fort was used as troop barracks and to guard the supply line to King Williams Town.

Inside its walls there were stables, stores, a hospital, cookhouses and the powder magazine (which was later moved to another building outside of the fort).

Named a national monument in 1938, the building stands within the Glamorgan prison grounds. Permission from the department of correctional services will need to be given before access to visit the fort will be granted.
