Gauteng DestinationsWestcliff, Johannesburg

Westcliff lies almost cheek-by-jowl with Parkview and Houghton and benefits from lying close to major arterial roads. You might be in one of the country’s most notoriously busy cities, but in Westcliff things slow to a more sedate pace.

The Killarney Mall, mall of Rosebank and the lovely village of Parkhurst, with its pavement coffee shops and restaurants and distinct element of street life, are all close enough to reach quickly and provide hours of entertainment. You’re also moments from the Zoo.

Westcliff is one of Johannesburg’s most gracious older suburbs. It sits on a bend on the M1, a mere 10 minutes from Johannesburg’s vibrant city centre. Westcliff is home to a smattering of highly prized historic Sir Herbert Baker homes on large properties with established gardens and its broad streets are lined with aged, large and lovely trees.

The colourful suburb of Braamfontein, linked to Newtown by the now famous Nelson Mandela Bridge, is easily accessed. It is regarded as a gateway to the city centre revival that includes the Market Theatre, now transformed into a safe and attractive part of the city.

The Oriental Plaza, just around the corner from Newtown en route to the University of Johannesburg, is worth a visit too. It teems with colour and the smell of incense. Get ready to barter your way to the price that you deem worthy of paying for your purchase.

Reviews of Westcliff

Very disappointing. Very small portions and not much choice, plus the tea was served in a white teapot, which was not the correct type of pot for serving...
