Where to See English, Dutch, and Danish Influence in Accra

Where to See English, Dutch, and Danish Influence in Accra

The colonial influences on Ghana's capital city can be felt not only in the architecture and history, but in the character and design of Accra's neighborhoods as well. Here's where to see touchstones to much of the nation's European past.

Victoriaborg

Located just beyond the eastern city limits of Accra, this wealthy neighborhood was formed in the late 19th century for European settlers. Today, luxury homes, lush green golf courses, and polo and cricket fields serve as a nod to the British roots of this exclusive community. 

East Ridge

This nearby suburb is an extension of the Victoriaborg district and home to all of Accra's government offices, in addition to the National Theater and the Efua Sutherland Children's Park.  

Jamestown

Set east of the Korle Lagoon, Jamestown is one of the oldest and most populated districts in Ghana. Visitors to this busy fishing village will find remnants of the nation's colonial past, including the Jamestown Lighthouse and old James Fort. 

Usshertown

Home to one of three forts built by Europeans in the 17th century, the old neighborhood of Usshertown showcases the influence of the Dutch on Ghana's history. Travelers can explore remains of once regal structures, which today are being restored and transformed into museums.
