About Georgetown

Georgetown is Guyana's crumbling colonial capital. It's distinctly Caribbean, with a real laid-back, small-town feel but is filled with historic monuments and fabulous restaurants. And it is surrounded by an irresistible combination of breathtaking natural beauty - pristine Amazonian rainforests, immense waterfalls and amazing wildlife.
BR>Filled with whitewashed, wooden houses, its Victorian and Dutch Colonial architecture is detailed with louvered window shutters and decorative stonework. The most impressive building in town is the Gothic-style St George's Cathedral, said to be the world's tallest wooden building at 43 metres. And the Lighthouse offers spectacular panoramic views of the capital.

The edgy Stabroek Market, a cast-iron building with a corrugated-iron clock tower, is frenetic and colourful and dates back to the late 1700s. And there's an excellent Botanical Gardens, with a good zoo.
