On the eastern side of Table Mountain is the Rhodes Memorial, a huge granite reminder of the power and wealth of empire builder, former prime minister and founder of the De Beers Mining Company, Cecil Rhodes. The memorial itself is said to replicate the arch in Hyde Park in London. However, perhaps more memorable are the magnificent panoramic views to be had over Table Bay and False Bay. Visitors can stop off for refreshments at an outdoor tearoom next to the memorial.
