City Centre Travel Guide

Simply called the City Centre by Capetonians, Cape Town's CBD reflects what this awesome city is really about. Central Cape Town has all the vibe you want and more – fabulous parties, nightlife, restaurants, shopping, theatres, numerous galleries and amazing cultural attractions.

Long Street is where it all happens. Enjoy sundowners and dinner at one of many outstanding restaurants and then cruise to the vibey pubs, cigar bars and clubs for a big night out.

Explore the Iziko National Art Gallery, Museums and Parliament House in the Company Gardens. On the way back grab a bunch of blooms from the flower sellers of Adderley Street. A few blocks away is the Edwardian-era City Hall, the spot where Nelson Mandela famously made his first speech after being released from prison.

Greenmarket Square and St George's Mall lie in the heart of the City Centre, a vibrant fusion of African culture and European heritage. Beautifully restored old Cape Dutch buildings neighbour modern apartments, studios, offices, shops and entertainment facilities.

Along with the greatest concentration of South Africa’s historical buildings and some of Cape Town's best hotels, all with gorgeous views, the City Centre is also home to the ultra-slick Cape Town International Convention Center. Popular places to stay in close proximity to the Convention Centre are the upmarket apartments in Thibault Square, Triangle House and the Convention Towers.
