Rhodes Memorial, which nestles at the base of Devil's Peak, provides spectacular views towards both Table Bay, False Bay and the Hottentots Holland mountains in the far distance. Designed and built by the acclaimed architect Sir Herbert Baker between 1910 and 1912, the memorial was constructed after Cecil John Rhodes' death to mark his favourite spot which he declared had a view '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.
