History Forgotten and History Remembered
Jan 2020
To some the history of the British 1820 Settlers can invoke strong feelings. The most amazing thing I noted about this monument, was how the rich history of Makhanda morphed around the old history. While it is called the Settlers Monument, the Battle of Grahamstown made for a more fascinating history lesson.

National Arts Festival
Jul 2019 • Solo
Close to the N2 (the national road), the Monument was one of many venues that hosted the National Arts Festival.The building has many venues within its walls. Facilities were adequate (clean bathrooms, restaurants, parking). The history of the settlers is also well-maintained...cannons and the old building as it overlooks the city.

Striking monument and wonderful views.
Mar 2019 • Couples
This was a very nice surprise. It takes a bit of finding but is well worth it as the monument itself is impressive but the views are superb. You can visit the Provost prison on the way up and have a coffee.

Beautiful
Nov 2017 • Friends
It is always good visiting this site although not much happens mid-year except for when there is the buzz from the arts festival. Very neat & well kept and a great venue for whatever the occasion.
