Selborne is a friendly residential suburb in the geographical heart of East London, a small city on the coast of the Eastern Cape. Selborne is known for a number of educational institutions and is also brimming with sporting facilities.
The suburb lies north of the original East London CBD and the Buffalo River and Harbour. However, the city of East London is not a big one and as Selborne is located, quite literally, in the centre of the developed area, many of the city's attractions are very easily accessible from the suburb.
Selborne is surrounded by important transport links, one of which is the North East Expressway, which make it even easier to get around. The suburb is separated from the Walter Sisulu University by a railway siding and Selborne College, one of the oldest boys' schools in South Africa is also located in the neighbourhood.
An often cited amenity in the area is the Joan Harrison Swimming Pool while the Vincent Park Shopping Centre has all the mod-cons of a shopping mall anywhere in the world. Attractions close to Selborne could theoretically include anywhere in the city, however the closest attractions are no doubt the East London Golf Club and the city's central business district, which is home to numerous historical buildings and museums.
Nahoon Beach, a favourite amongst the local surfing fraternity can be easily reached from Selborne, and the old seaside promenade near the city centre isn't too far either.
One of the nicest things about Selborne though, and indeed East London as a whole, is that it is a relaxed place with friendly locals which promises a pleasant stay among instant friends.
