“Everyone who visits the Cape comes to the V&A Waterfront where you will find shopping of all sorts, restaurants, cafés and bars as well as music, dance, theatre, cinemas, harbour tours, fishing trips, chopper rides and much more. Many will be unaware of the truly fascinating history of the area and it's much less celebrious face in the past. The tour from the Chavonnes Battery close to the Clock Tower runs twice daily and, although we thought we already had a good knowledge of the area, we had our eyes truly opened by our excellent guide.”

“The Clock Tower is a truly interesting section of the Waterfront, taking its name from the central clock tower found in this part of the harbour. You access the Clock Tower either by crossing a pedestrian bridge over the water, or by taking the road that leads to the Cape Grace instead of the main Waterfront turn-off. There is a small shopping centre, a scattering of restaurants and some postcard perfect views to enjoy here. Don't forget your camera - you will want to get a shot of the iconic red clock tower!”
