The City Bowl is where all the action happens. Right in the centre of the vibrant Mother City, nestled by Table Bay, Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, it’s the prime location to experience all the incredible city of Cape Town has to offer.
The iconic Long Street runs the length of the City Bowl. Bustling by day and springing to life at night, it epitomises the energetic and dynamic attitude Cape Town is known for. Shop for anything from curios and local goods to international brands and upmarket fashion. Browse the stalls at Greenmarket Square or watch the shoppers from one of the sidewalk cafes. There are innumerable bars, restaurants, cafes and clubs to choose from where you’ll be treated to quality food and drink from near and far. Enjoy sundowners on a rooftop terrace or balcony overlooking the street below, before getting ready to dance the night away.
Running parallel to Long Street is the picturesque Company’s Garden, which is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet lunch, and is also home to many of the Iziko Museums. Iziko Museums, a declared national heritage institution, supports museums such as the South African National Gallery, the Planetarium and South African Museum to name a few, and showcases art, culture and history not to be missed.
The historic Table Mountain watches over the City Bowl and offers activities like hiking, abseiling, cableway trips, mountain biking and so much more! With summits like Devil’s Peak, Lion’s Head and Table Mountain to choose from, getting a lay of the land has never been easier.
On the doorstep of the city’s best attractions and comprising of some of the best hotels in Cape Town, not to mention the wide variety of guest houses and self catering units as well, City Bowl accommodation never fails to impress.
