Situated on the slopes of Devils Peak, Woodstock looks onto the harbour and Table Mountain. Divided into Upper and Lower Woodstock with Main Road separating them, the suburb has two distinct personalities. Lower Woodstock is the less upmarket and dilapidated part with Upper Woodstock not only consisting of larger and beautifully restored Victorian, semi-detached homes, but also for the many trendy and popular businesses, restaurants and cafes that have opened.
One of Cape Town’s up and coming trendy hot spots, Woodstock is constantly being boosted in the commercial and residential spheres. One big attraction includes the Old Biscuit Mill – a market where local produce is sold every Saturday and is the ideal place to meet friends and family for a day out. Woodstock is also home to many antique and second-hand furniture shops where shop owners usually transform the furniture into something of their own. The city centre is a quick drive with the popular Long Street and Kloof street easily accessible where there is a selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and clubs to choose from.
Accommodation in Woodstock can be defined as Cape Town’s urban living. Woodstock accommodation includes industrial and warehouse-influenced self-catering apartments, guesthouses with a Victorian steampunk flare and bed and breakfasts that provide all that you may need when visiting this destination. The area is ripe with opportunity and has much to offer visitors.
