Nyeri is the burial place of Lieutenant-General Lord Baden-Powell, a commander in the Boer War and the founder of the Scouting Movement, who once wrote "the nearer to Nyeri the nearer to bliss".[16] He and his wife, Olave, Lady Baden-Powell, G.B.E., are buried in the town cemetery.. Nyeri remains a place of pilgrimage for the worldwide Scouting and Guiding Movements, with members congregating in the town from time to time for various activities and functions.

The Italian War Memorial Chapel, located at Mathari, was built in honour of the fallen Italian soldiers and their African recruits from the Second World War. It is used not for regular worship, but only to celebrate a special Mass on every 2 November in memory of the fallen soldiers. On the entire walling of the main church building are memorials for the many Italian servicemen who died during WWII. Each memorial is in the form of a small oblong plaque indicating the name of the soldier, the battalion he served in, and the place where he died. At the far front, before the altar, is the grave of a senior Italian Royal Army officer.
While at Nyeri, you can easily access Mt Kenya, The Aberdares, Solio Ranch as well as the Lewa conservancy.
