Cape Town sports venues are some of the oldest and most iconic in the world. Guided tours with Gateway to Newlands will take you behind-the-scenes of Newlands Cricket Ground and Newlands Rugby Stadium, both set at the foot of Table Mountain. With the most beautiful backdrop framing these brilliant arenas, it’s not hard to see why they are universally regarded as gorgeously atmospheric.
Voted second behind only the great Lords as the most loved ground, the first pitch of Newlands Cricket Ground was laid on a farm in 1887. The rugby arena is known as the second oldest on the planet, having been established in 1890 and now staging countless international and provincial matches. The nearby railway station gives convenient, almost instant access to both stadiums while Devil’s Peak looms behind. You can also visit the Sports Science Institute of South Africa, functioning both as a high quality gym and a high performance laboratory.
