Ellis park is full of History. I would recommend to pay a little bit extra for parking close to the stadium and s theres quite a few really safe parking lots nearby The atmosphere here is overwhelming sometimes but it's an experience everyone would enjoy, Many places to grab something to eat and drink.

My daughter and I visited the Ellis Park Rugby Museum early in the morning. We were greeted by very friendly staff who were interested in where we came from, our involvement in rugby, etc and then gave us as much time as we needed to wander around the museum which has an incredible amount of memorabilia and news articles on...

Was a shocking experiance ... The fact you feel so un-safe from the moment you park your car to the fact you have ot walk far to get to the stadium , haggled and harassed for money and rubbish by the locals made this a terrible experience .. Do not take smaller kids cause the area is terribly unsafe
