The town of Ladysmith featured very prominently in the Anglo-Boer war (1899-1902) and is subsequently steeped in history. The Siege Museum, situated next to the Ladysmith Town Hall, is definitely worth a visit as well as several other memorial sites and monuments located around the town. Other historical places of interest in Ladysmith include the Mahadma Gandhi Memorial and the Soofie Mosque.
