The grounds of beautiful Islamia College are open to the public, allowing anyone to enjoy the glory of its Victorian architecture and tranquil, green premises. It is a reputable academic institution, too, and one important enough to be displayed on the 1000 Pakistani Rupees banknote.
Do & See
Given that most city exploration is done during daylight hours, there is plenty to easily fill a space of a few days. Apart from the must-dos of Peshawar Museum and the Old Town, one unusual attraction is the 1920s Khyber Railway, trips on which are only possible by prior appointment. Depending on their planned time of travel, adventure-seekers might want to look into visiting one of the notorious gun factories in the outlying Tribal Areas (or the infamous Darra Adam Khel), but doing so outside of a guided tour can be highly dangerous and is strongly advised against.
