Independence Square Tours

Independence Square
Known by locals as Black Star Square, Independence Square is located in bustling Accra and serves as a tribute to the nation’s inspiring past. Commissioned by Ghana’s first president in 1961 to pay homage to Queen Elizabeth II, Independence Square is the second largest city square in the world. Its well-manicured grounds, towering fountain, Black Star Gate and Independence Arch prove an impressive destination and popular backdrop for photos in the nation’s capital city. 

Travelers who arrive near the March 6 Independence Day Parade can catch all the wonder from one of the square’s 30,000 seats. Visitors arriving other times of year still have a chance to see public gatherings and national festivals that take place at this hub of city life.

Practical Info

Independence Square is located between the Accra Sports Stadium and Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park.
Address: Independence Square, Accra, Ghana

Year of Return

Year of Return

star-5
August 2019, is exactly 400 years after the arrival of the first recorded landing of a slave ship in Virginia, which saw the acceleration of the horrendous Middle Passage, hundreds of descendants of former enslaved Africans will make a triumphant return to the land of our ancestry. The trip will take us to Ghana: the land of Kwame Nkrumah-the father of Ghana’s independence and a co-founder of the Organization of African Unity; the country where the great pan-Africanist Dr W. E. B. DuBois spent his final years; the land where Ashanti Kings still hold court and mediate disputes in time-honoured traditions passed down through generations; the land that has preserved more slave dungeons used in the transatlantic slave trade than any other country on the continent. Ghana was the first sub-Saharan African country to gain its independence from Europeans and is today a thriving democracy, yet its traditions, customs and culture are almost undiluted.
