The V&A Waterfront

The V&A Waterfront - About the Neighbourhood

The V&A Waterfront is considered the most visited tourist destination in South Africa. Steeped in history and home to the oldest working harbour in the Southern hemisphere – this mixed-use destination is ideal to live, work and play and is guaranteed to fill a few of your days when visiting Cape Town.

The 123-hectare neighbourhood celebrates heritage and diversity which is clear in the variety of activities and experiences visitors have access to. Visitors can look

forward to beautiful hotels, museums, restaurants, coffee shops and bars, the Two Oceans Aquarium, food markets, a shopper’s paradise at the Victoria and Alfred mall and other retail spaces.

A local foodie haven can be found at Makers Landing at the Cape Town Cruise Terminal while the young ones can keep busy at Battery Park skate and scooter park which also contains public walking paths and benches. The Silo District’s focal attraction is the exquisite Zeitz MOCCA (Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Modern Art) – the building itself is an old grain silo innovatively recreated into this stunning museum. The Silo District has a couple of hotels and fine dining restaurants as well as high end boutiques. The Clocktower precinct is where you will find the Nelson Mandela Gateway to Robben Island. The Clocktower itself is an icon of Table Bay Harbour and was the original Port Captain’s office built in 1882. It was declared a national monument in 1978. You can also hop on a City Sightseeing bus from this point, do a harbour cruise with one of the many charter options or a helicopter flip over the city. There is something for everyone!
