Rhodes Memorial


Rhodes Memorial, which nestles at the base of Devil's Peak on Table Mountain, provides spectacular views towards Table Bay, False Bay and the Hottentots Holland mountains in the far distance. Designed by the acclaimed architect Sir Herbert Baker between 1910 and 1912, the memorial was constructed on the site where Sir Cecil John Rhodes was known to sit and contemplate his future while gazing at the view he deemed as ‘unsurpassed anywhere in the world’.

What was previously a cottage is today a popular tea-room where outdoor tables scattered beneath the trees make the most of the splendid view. Breakfast, lunch and delicious afternoon tea can be enjoyed – followed by a stroll through the impressive monument built from Table Mountain granite.
