Greyton was established in 1854 when a farm in the region was divided into plots and the village was named after the Governor of the Cape at the time, Sir George Grey (1854 – 1861). Today, its leafy lanes, historic cottages and natural surrounds attract visitors from near and far.
Its mountain setting is paradise for outdoor enthusiasts (both fit and novice). There are safe and easy-to-navigate trails for strolling and hiking, trail running and mountain biking. The bird life and fynbos will also delight nature-lovers.
For those who enjoy food and festivities – there is a buzzing fresh produce, arts and crafts market every Saturday morning from 10am until noon in the town square. The town also offers a selection of popular festivals throughout the year.
