Kenilworth, Southern Suburbs

Kenilworth, Cape Town

Once you've booked your accommodation in Kenilworth, explore our pages for info on attractions and what to do in Kenilworth.

Kenilworth lies flanked by the Constantia Winelands and popular Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, between the suburbs of Claremont and Wynberg. A leafy suburb, upper Kenilworth is a well established part of Cape Town and homes here are large and expensive with extensive gardens.

Across the railway line and south of Main Road, away from the mountain, Kenilworth still offers good value for money and remains affordable to middle class Capetonians. You’re close to everything from here - the city is only 20 minutes’ drive, Claremont and her extensive shopping centres are just up the road and you’re close to the Constantia Wine Route and Maynardville Theatre with its annual renditions of Shakespeare, in the old village of Wynberg.
