Business hub of the Swartland

Malmesbury was named after Sir Galbraith Lowry Cole’s father-in-law, the Earl of Malmesbury, who probably had hoped that the warm sulphur chloride mineral spring that was discovered and known to cure rheumatism, would become as famous as the hot springs of Bath in England.

The first farms were allocated in 1703. The town became known as Het Zwartlandskerk when the fifth Dutch Reformed congregation in the Cape was established. It was renamed Malmesbury in 1829.

Today Malmesbury is the bustling business hub of the Swartland region. Centrally situated, it is within easy reach of Cape Town, the West Coast and the Winelands. A plethora of amenities is available, such as an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a community sport center, and a golf club. New developments include a new mall and a private hospital.

Around Malmesbury are the smaller villages of Abbotsdale, Chatsworth, and Kalbaskraal.
