Adderley Street / City Bowl
Cape Town

On the square in front of the station is a permanent open-air market. Here one can find, besides leather goods and shoes, curios and handcrafted goods, cheap clothing and imitations of famous sportswear brands (Diesel, Quiksilver, Nike) for the shortlived good impression. A pedestrian bridge leads to the Golden Acre, South Africa's oldest shopping centre. Nowadays the St. George's Mall is more popular for shopping. It runs parallel to Adderley Street and many of the shops have entrances on both sides.

Flower Market Cape TownBetween Strand Street and Darling Street, lies the famous Flower Market. Freshly cut flowers have been sold here on weekdays for more than a hundred years.

The upper part of Adderley Street is characterised by a number of historical buildings. On Church Square is the entrance to the Groote Kerk, one of the oldest churches in South Africa and motherhouse of the first parish of the NG Kerk (Dutch Reformed Church). At the end of the street is the Slave Lodge with a statue of Jan Smuts in front of it. The Dutch-East-India Company imprisoned its slaves there. Today it is a museum for cultural history.

Accommodation within the city centre and the City Bowl suburbs of Gardens, Oranjezicht and Tamboerskloof can be found on the blue INFO page.
