EXPLORE THE VIBRANT URBAN HEART OF THE CAPE TOWN CBD
Nestled between the iconic Table Mountain, Signal Hill and V&A Waterfront is the beating urban heart of Cape Town. The vibrant Cape Town city centre is alive with fascinating stories of past and present, captivating public art, beautiful spaces, dramatic architecture, and a dynamic food and retail culture. There’s simply no better way to explore this all than on foot, and walking the streets will bring the city to life before your eyes – we recommend you join one of the FREE guided tours. The City Walk seamlessly connects you to the Cape Town CBD’s top sights and attractions through a collaborative community placemarking approach. You’ll leave with a newfound love and appreciation for the Mother City, and a strong desire to return.
“The Mother city is smallish, casual but supremely stylish, and welcoming – words that describe its artisanal foods and restaurant scenes as much as its citizens,” the magazine said of Cape Town.
The soul of a city is often to be found in its food and the Cape Town CBD is no different. A wide diversity of food is to be found on the City Walk – from award-winning restaurants to street food vendors, street cafes and food markets. From Malaysian to Ethiopian to Nigerian to Italian to Mexican to Chinese, there’s hardly a country that isn’t represented gastronomically along the City Walk.
