The city centre is always the heartbeat of any city and this is where the Mother City is at her most vibrant. This is where it all happens and where any tour of Cape Town should begin.
Cape Town’s CBD is where all the cultural diversity of this incredible city can be found in one melting pot, where history combines with contemporary outlook, and points of view are exchanged with passion.
- Excellent theatrical productions can be enjoyed at both the Artscape Theatre Centre and the Fugard Theatre
- Bree Street is worth a stroll from top to bottom - but it won't be without many stops and makes for a wonderful day!
- Stop by the Company's Gardens for a picnic, a wander, a time out, or even a meal at the restaurant there
By day, the city centre is the seething hub of industry, and by night it shows entirely different colours.
Markets, designer boutiques, and authentic traders; coffee shops, quirky eateries, and fine dining; bars, nightclubs, and sophisticated cocktail lounges - whatever it is you seek, it can be found in the city centre.
Long Street and Bree Street vie for the title of "Coolest Street in Cape Town" and both offer much to explore. And when you need a break from the pulsing beat of the city, step through the gates of the Company's Gardens for trees, grass, tranquility, and exceptional views.View other areas >
