Union Buildings

The Union Buildings are among the most important landmarks in the South African city of Pretoria, mainly because they contain the official government offices for the President of South Africa and his cabinet. The stately sandstone structure was designed by master architect Sir Herbert Baker, and it is surrounded by beautiful grounds featuring terraced gardens. Comprised of an amphitheatre and several monuments, such as the South African Police Memorial, the Union Buildings are located near Church Square and other major landmarks like the Voortrekker Monument and the South African National Film, Video and Sound Archives.

  • Explore the lovely Victorian-era Kruger House Museum, the last residence of former President and freedom fighter Paul Kruger who left Pretoria in 1901 to enter political exile.
  • Admire fifty hectares of glorious South African plants, trees, and shrubs as well as almost 200 species of birds and reptiles at the Pretoria Botanical Garden near the Union Buildings.
  • Shop, dine, and enjoy fine art at the Brooklyn Mall, which features several galleries and exhibition courts as well as a cinema that shows indie and major blockbuster films.

The O.R Tambo International Airport is 53 kilometres from the Union Buildings of Pretoria via the R21 highway, and alternative airport transportation options include taxis, tour buses, airport shuttle, and the high speed rails. If you are driving in the Gauteng region, you will use highways N1, N2, N4, N12, or N14 to access this city. There are several major long-distance bus lines that serve Pretoria from other South African cities, including Greyhound, Translux, and Intercape Mainliner. Rental vehicles are the most convenient transport options around the Union Buildings, but minibus, taxis, and buses are also available.
