A Really Rewarding Neighbourhood – Even Without a Car

Buckingham also suits visitors without a car, as we are just a few minutes’ walk from a small neighbourhood centre offering everything from a hairdressing salon to an upmarket wine store. Amenities in this centre include:

  • Chemist and pharmacy
  • International brand Spar supermarket and bakery
  • First National Bank auto teller/atm (inside Spar)
  • Specialist fresh vegetable shop
  • Liquor store (off-licence) – though wine can also be bought at Spar
  • Petrol station (includes car valet service and great pizzeria!)
  • Florist offering Interflora service for convenient gifting
  • Doctors' rooms (General Practitioner)
  • Funky gourmet pasta restaurant where the locals gather on the deck for cocktails
Close by, but not within walking distance we also have a neighbourhood institution, Giles' pub, where people gather to watch the game or relax on the deck after work.



In South Africa's post-apartheid economic boom, the area has become highly sought after - a result of its lush mature trees, laid-back 'country' ambience, and unbeatable central location.
