We came for gifts only to find that it sells only the usual needlework items and no gifts. Their location changed and we travelled quite far in vain. Not worth the visit

It is my sad duty to inform the general public that due to a listing error, East London has mistakenly been credited an attraction already on the Trip Advisor's "Must-See" list, and, once that entry is disqualified, East London is reduced to boasting just 8 sights pending some suggestions of actual places that I have submitted for consideration.

It seems the Craft Gallery and the Floradale Centre are really the same place, and the voting pattern for both these venues shows some rather curious patterns which I leave readers to uncover for themselves !!!

The Craft Gallery on the map shows itself on Old Transkei Road, at the top of Beach road (it is on Old Transkei Rd, but miles east from there), The Floradale Centre's listing conviniently doesn't have a map, but the address given is Old Gonubie Road, which is where the Old Transkei Road goes, but Old Gonubie Road does not exist, so visitors beware, and certainly get local advice prior to taking too much notice of the directions and maps posted on here.

Still it isn't all bad news, with number 6 (or 7) soon disqualified, the much-loved Aquarium get to go up another place in the popularity stakes.

And this venue, call it Floradale or the Craft Centre, deserves an unflattering rating Their role, and I make no suggestion they had one, in getting double placement on the local attractions list plays no part, but for them to have had no idea of what a leading international travel website's reviews said about them frankly beggars belief, or are we to understand that management at one of East London's top independent retailers rarely spend much time online ???

A quaint little shop with a variety of arts and craft goodies. A nice place to pop into if you are looking for someone (or yourself) who is arty or also if you are looking for upmarket handmade goodies.

Our family spent the afternoon visiting the Craft Gallery at the Floradale Centre in East London. They have the most amazing gifts. This is a very unique shop and includes art materials,stunning childrens toys and handmade crafts. The also offer art and craft supplies, needlework requisites. Lots of unusual items for tourists gifts. We did all our Christmas shopping. Friendly staff and a very happy visit.
