Experience the whole of Constitution Hill – the Old Fort, the Women`s Jail, Number Four and the Constitutional Court – on our full, two-hour tour.
This holistic tour comes to the heart of what Constitution Hill is all about, exploring the precinct’s complex history, its mutations through time, the humiliations and injustices to which its inmates were subjected, and offering an explanation as to why the court’s presence in this place is so meaningful.
