V & A Waterfront

Situated at the foot of Table Mountain and in the heart of Cape Town’s working harbour, the Victoria & Alfred Wharf attracts more international visitors than any other shopping destination in South Africa. The Victorian architecture of the Waterfront pulses with African energy where there are more than 400 retail outlets offering both local and international brands,  ranging from high fashion, to African curios, exclusive jewellery, high-quality leather goods, audio-visual equipment, lifestyle stores, and art galleries.

The V&A Waterfront  is part of the working harbour that was established in 1860, when the spice trade routes between East and West transformed the Cape into a rewarding trading post. 

For relaxing and family-friendly activities, you can enjoy seal-watching in the harbour, a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium or the Maritime Museum, boat trips around the harbour and along the coast, or an exciting helicopter tour! A wide range of Restaurants in the Waterfront serve food ranging from fine dining to traditional African cuisine.
