The Adventure begins at the top of The Valley Road, where explorers will discover four stately homes, each adorned with a blue heritage site plaque detailing the history of the residence. One of the highlights of the Adventure is Prospect Terrace, a house once owned by Dr. Bernard Friedman, a prominent figure in the fight against apartheid.
