I have been to Pelgrim's Rest a few years ago, and was very dissappointed to find the town so quiet and dull now. A lot of the old little shops closed down, that made the place so special. We will definitely not be returning to Pelgrim's Rest

History is so good to view.
Lunch at the local Hotel is a magical experience.
Try the local brew too.
Take a Tuk-Tuk tour with a difference.

My first trip to Pilgrim's Rest and I was left wondering. Upon entering this small, historic town, you are taken aback by the heritage that stands before you. Drive a little further, and the local kids are milling around for handouts. The car "guard" insists that his (illegal) parking wont generate a fine and the general public have compete disregard for the rules of the road.

It's a quaint and historic little town, but I think the town folk need to do more to combat the annoyance of the begging locals and harassing car guards. But it's worth a drive through.

Some of the old buildings are not kept in good condition even though a small entrance fee is paid. We understand that there is minimal opportunity for the local people to make money but trying to sell you all their items 10 times over and at rediculous prices is not very good for business either. There is not much variety and every stall sells the same stuff as the next. The silk shop was excellent, we visited the factory shop in Graskop and it was amazing. A local business that we will support anytime.

I think this place is a waste of time. There's nothing to see. It didn't even give you the feeling of that gold mining era. It's not worth your time.
