I ♥ Hurlingham

I ♥ Hurlingham

Hi, I’m Trish from Hurlingham House in Hurlingham.

Hurlingham IS BEST KNOWN FOR being a peaceful and safe suburb, yet it’s only 3km from the heart of Sandton.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the statue of Nelson Mandela in Mandela Square.

THE BEST architectural PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT the Sandton CBD.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT Zoo Lake.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO sit at our swimming pool or in a sidewalk cafe.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO go to Sandton City Mall.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS spring or summer, BECAUSE the trees in Hurlingham are beautiful and the weather is good.

FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST the Piazza at Monte Casino. Take your pick from the six restaurants.

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS The Local Grill, Hurlingham Manor, TRY THE steaks.

BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM restaurants at Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton.

MY FAVOURITE viewing and high tea SPOT IS the The Westcliff Hotel.

FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY Taboo at 24 Central.

IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO 4th Avenue Parkhurst or Newtown.

Hurlingham’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS its beauty, tranquility and safety.

MY FAVOURITE BUILDING IS the Nedbank Head Office, FOR ITS carbon negative footprint.

TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS Jozi Kids.

BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS the Joburg Zoo.

WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO shop at the iStore in Sandton City.

THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE IS the spectacular thunderstorms.

MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS the Magaliesburg.

WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I donate blood.

I Love Hurlingham BECAUSE it is a tranquil suburb close to so much action.
