Re. The oldest settler house in town
Really? You didn't have a guide? The curator of No 7 usually shows the guests around the attraction. Sounds like you were out of luck that day!

It's a shame you didn't get to try the Cape Recife Nature Reserve also. The best of the two in my opinion! Long and pristine beaches and diverse flora. I recommend a morning walk but do take mosquito repellent!

The oldest settler house in town
When we were planning our itineraries shortly after having arrived in Port Elizabeth, No 7 Castle Hill Museum was right up there at the top. After visiting it, I can say that it is definitely worthy of such prestige and is of historical importance to the area. In wonderful condition to say that it has been standing since 1827. We could have done with a guide though, to be honest.

Thankfully there are plenty of nature reserves that welcome tourists in and around Port Elizabeth, but the only one I had the chance to visit was Van Stadens. I've never seen such astonishing natural beauty elsewhere in Africa and recommend this to all. Even though I didn't visit the others, I would say that there is no competition.

More than just local art
I would have been more than happy to see just local South African art alone at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum, which is around three miles from Port Elizabeth city centre, but there was much more than that with Oriental, Indian, and British art too.
