Constitution Hill is a unique Multi purpose development in the Inner City of Johannesburg, a National and International Heritage Site and the home of the Constitutional Court, the protector of our basic rights and freedoms. Conveniently located on the border of Braamfontein and Hillbrow.

Constitution Hill is also the site of Johannesburg's notorious Old Fort Prison Complex, commonly known as Number Four, where thousands of ordinary people were brutally punished before the dawn of democracy in 1994. Many of South Africa's leading political activists, including Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, were detained here.

In addition to the permanent exhibitions, interactive experiences and educational programmes, Constitution Hill offers a full calendar of public programmes and exhibitions that bring the site to life and enable the public to connect with the activities of the Constitutional Court.
