Itinerary Accra is home to an incredible range of architectural triumphs, so what better way to see them than with the Urban Adventures crew? Start your Accra walking tour by meeting a friendly local guide at Ussher Fort, then travel to some of the neighborhoods first occupied by European settlers many years ago. Marvel at the Euro-style beauty and elegance of grand buildings and stately homes located in the Danish Accra and Dutch Accra areas. Your Accra tour continues as we head over 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 have survived from the colonial era - true icons of Accra's history. Don’t forget to take plenty of photos, as these neighborhoods reveal a different side of Accra. Next, admire the Sea View Hotel, which, as the oldest hotel in Accra, has a fascinating history worth hearing about. Continue the journey by appreciating more local architecture, from colonial era houses to Palladium Hall, a place of great local political significance.
