  • Admire some of Ghana’s most impressive colonial buildings
  • Learn about international influences on the local architecture

Overview
Discover the diverse architectural wonders of Accra on a guided tour with Urban Adventures. Admire colonial buildings built hundreds of years ago by the first Europeans to visit the area.
What to Expect
In the colonial era, Accra was divided between English, Dutch, and Danish areas. Because of this diverse history, the Ghanan capital is home to an incredible range of architectural achievments. Start your walking tour of Accra's architectural sights by meeting a friendly local guide at Ussher Fort in Dutch Accra, then travel to some of the first neighborhoods built by European settlers hundreds of years ago. Marvel at the Euro-style beauty and elegance of the grand buildings and stately homes located in the Danish and Dutch Accra areas.

Continue your journey to English Accra (also known as Jamestown), which used to house most of the former English officials and staff that served in the colonial government during the 19th century. Next, stroll through the Ga-Mashie area of Jamestown and admire the many architectural masterpieces that survive from the colonial era. Don’t forget to take plenty of photos, as these neighborhoods reveal a different side of Accra.

Then go to the Sea View Hotel, the oldest hotel in Accra, which has a fascinating history. Continue on to discover more local architecture, from more colonial era houses to Palladium Hall, a place of great local political significance. You finish your tour at Arena Accra, hopefully with a camera full of stunning snapshots!
