When visiting Kimberley make sure you take a turn past the city hall. The architecture alone is stunning. This elegant cream and white building is situated on the corner of Old Main Street and Phakamile Mabija Road (formerly Transvaal Road) in the city centre.
The City Hall dates from 1899 (the original town hall having burnt down in March 1898), just before the the Siege of Kimberley at the start of the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902). Fergus Carstairs Rogers was the architect responsible for this outstanding workmanship.
In the foyer of the City Hall are displays of mayoral gowns from the late 1800s, some early photographs and other historical artifacts.
