Return to a Victorian era during a visit to Bertram House in Cape Town

The Bertram House museum in Company Gardens: "Furnished to represent an English family home at the Cape during the early 1800's."


Built in late Georgian style as a private residence, Iziko Bertram House was extensively restored and became a museum in 1984. It is furnished to represent an English family home at the Cape during the early 1800s and it houses the Anne Lidderdale Collection.
