This self guided audio tour takes you from the Castle to the old Slave Lodge. Imagine, just imagine the throngs of slaves that have walked this route, taken off the ships near the Castle and led in irons to the slave lodge; think of the settlers, adventurers, missionaries and soldiers disembarking near the Parade; imagine doffing your hat to the governor as he leaves the Castle on his way to the Company's Garden; picture brawling seamen and soldiers, public executions outside the Castle walls; imagine mingling with the crowds on the Grand Parade when Princess Elisabeth arrived at the City Hall or when Nelson Mandela spoke from its balcony; imagine also the soccer fanatics gathering on the Grand Parade for public viewing in 2010; visualize the eager crowds when the postal ships arrived; imagine, meeting famous visitors, such as David Livingstone on Church Square, or famous residents such as Anreith the sculptor; Schutte, the builder; Thibault and Sir Herbert Baker, the architects.
