From Kenya's only nobel laureate to the founder of the global scouts' movement, and Kenya's third president, Nyeri is the home of iconic figures. In this small town which has resisted change for centuries, a young girl, many moons ago, went to bed a princess and woke up a Queen. Queen Elizabeth II learnt of her father's death in Nyeri while staying at The Treetops in the Aberdares.
