|Jamestown originated as a community that emerged around the 17th century British James Fort, merging with Accra as the city grew. These days, Jamestown is one the poorer neighbourhoods of Accra but it
remains vibrant. For a great view of the city and the busy and colourful fishing harbour (haze and pollution permitting), climb to the top of the whitewashed lighthouse . There are several boxing gyms in Jamestown
that have nurtured a long line of local kids into champions. You’ll see plenty of posters around.
