Branch on to Kijabe Street where many book shops and publishers are situated.
Enter Moi Avenue past the Old Salvation Army Building. Turn into Muindi Mbingu Street past Jivanjee Gardens on the left, and the City Market to the right. The City Market is housed in what was originally meant to be an aircraft hanger, but it was never used for this purpose. Instead, curios, crafts and farm produce are sold here. Drive down Banda Street past the largest Mosque in the country - the Jamia Mosque, and the McMillan Library built in pre-independent Kenya is our largest library. This is run by our City Council.

Former American Embassy is situated on the corner of Moi Avenue which is now a memorial place. To the right on Haile Selasie Avenue is the Railway Station, the Railway Museum and the Kenya Railways Headquarters.
