First get a permit from the department of historical interest and arrange a time and a person (Gide) to show you around. PLACE IS VERRY BIG AND NOT ALL LOCATIONS ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC .

A really nice area for a walk or an area for a picnic. You can walk around this lovely area. The grounds are well maintained and the huge statue of Nelson Mandela is a fitting tribute to a great man.

Beautiful building but the garden is a big letdown. Clearly the gardens are no longer enjoying proper attention. The building can not be accessed but could be seen behind the upper embankment was nice. The view over the city would be the only reason to visit this site.

The imposing, elegant Union Buildings in Pretoria stand as a monument to the British and Afrikaaner forebears who helped to found and build South Africa. A great statue of Nelson Mandela stands on a hill below the Union Buildings and should be part of any visit to this seat of government in the Executive Capital of South Africa.

Lovely lawns for a nice family picnic! There are still quite a number of visitors to the Union Buildings, even though access to the upper part of the buildings is prohibited.
