Ladysmith's main asset is the history... having made headlines worldwide when it was besieged for 118 days by Boer forces during the Anglo Boer war. There are historical buildings in Ladysmith about which visitors may not know much but are definitely worth adding to their itineraries. Places of interest to visit are the Mohandas Gandhi statue outside the Vishnu Temple. The Town Hall was built in 1893 and during the early stages of the siege, the hall was used as a hospital. It was declared a National monument in 1979. Outside the Town Hall is the replica of the Long Toms used during the 118 day Seige of Ladysmith. To describe the Seige Museum as just a Museum would be unfair, it is a living , breathing repository of the town's History. Worthwhile to visit. Ladysmith serves as a Gateway to the much sought after Drakenberg site - one of South Africa's prime tourist destinations. The Okhahkamba Drakensberg - from hiking and walking in the mountains, to quad biking, swinging trapeze and rafting. The adrenaline junkie and those looking for peaceful tranquility will both find what they are looking for.
It also serves the home for four-time Grammy award winners " Ladysmith Black Mambazo" drawing thousands of visitors to its well-documented historic sites each year. Thanks to its year-round pleasant weather, Ladysmith also hosts a large number of events throughout the year.
