What’s on in Johannesburg is always changing and there is activity every day – whether you are interested in culture, sport, business for exhibitions and meetings or education.
Johannesburg is the financial hub of South Africa and the main airport into SOuth Africa is O R Tambo International Airport some 20 minutes drive from Johannesburg city centre so access is easy for performers and audience alike.
The major sports stadiums in and around Johannesburg are Ellis Park, FNB Stadium, Orlando Stadium and Wanderers Cricket Ground.
If you are coming to Johannesburg for sport at Wanderers Cricket Stadium or Ellis Park stadium then Abbotsford House is ideally situated about 6 minutes from Wanderers Stadium and 12 minutes from Ellis Park Stadium.
If you are coming for a major performance then if a performance is on in Johannesburg, it may be taking place at Montecasino, the Coca Cola Dome, the Johannesburg Theatre Complex or the Linder Auditorium. Abbotsford House is ideally situated for the Joburg Theatre and the Linder Auditorium.
Exhibition centres in Johannesburg and surrounds are the Sandton Convention Centre, Gallaghers Estate, the Dome and Nasrec. There are many hotels in Sandton near the Sandton COnvention Centre but if you have your own transport and prefer a guest house then Abbotsford House is only a 9 minute drive from Sandton at most times of day.
There is always something on in Johannesburg, even during the summer holidays when it would appear that everyone has gone away and there is nothing on in Johannesburg. It is actually the best time to be in Johannesburg. The weather is excellent and the crowds are all away at the coast. Abbotsford House has an inviting garden and swimming pool in which to relax.
There are many other reasons to come to Johannesburg and lots more is on at many more venues in Johannesburg throughout the year.
