Western Cape DestinationsGardens, City Bowl
Lying sandwiched between Oranjezicht and Tamboerskloof, within a stone’s throw of the centre of Cape Town, Gardens is a very popular suburb and one of the oldest and most established parts of Cape Town.
You’re just outside of the hustle and bustle of the city here, and Table Mountain, at whose foot the suburb lies, looms like a welcome armchair. Houses here - those that haven’t been subdivided or rezoned into business residences - have an air of the colonial about them and some of them are authentic mansions. No surprise then that many of these are given over to guest houses or hotels, whose large rooms with high ceilings and wooden floors are much sought after.
Vibrant and enticingly bohemian, trendy Long Street is full of restaurants, unconventional avenues worth exploring and coffee shops and bistros offering the full range of gastronomic delights, whilst trendy Kloof Street is also easily accessible from Gardens. Gardens is perfectly situated to quickly access the popular Atlantic beaches across Kloof Nek as well as the Table Mountain cableway and various other highlights like the V&A Waterfront, the Castle of Good Hope and Cape Town’s various museums and galleries.
