One city many styles – Cape Dutch, Empire, Brutalism, Art Deco, Cape Mediterranean…And many uses, starting as a humble refreshment station, then a settlement and small town largely built by enslaved labour, with canals and white houses between the sea and mountain slopes.
Cape Town’s first designers were trained in Europe – Germany, France, Holland and the UK (especially Scotland). Some stayed, others moved on.
Starting at the Castle of Good Hope on Grand Parade, stops include Buitenkant Street. George’s Mall, Wale St, Church Sq, Greenmarket Sq and Long St. We sometimes finish at an architectural practice.
This tour is led by me, Kate Crane Briggs. It is available as a private booking, ideal for first time visitors wanting to get a feel for the place.
