Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Baxter Theatre
The Baxter Theatre is arguably more about the architecture than the performing arts that take place inside it, but the campus-based building is still a great place for culture vultures to take in a wide range of productions.
Boekenhoutskloof
Whether you can pronounce it or not is irrelevant; Boekenhoutskloof is a historic wine estate that hosts tastings that would please even the most discerning connoisseur.
Boulders Penguin Colony
Boulders Penguin Colony is a remarkable site for those into nature; if you can't go to Antarctica, come here instead.
Castle of Good Hope
The Castle of Good Hope has everything you'd expect from a good fort, including a surrounding moat and dungeon, and it has great views of the area to boot.
District Six Museum
While it doesn't make for easy viewing, the District Six Museum remembers the site of Apartheid destruction - and it's a must on any visitor's itinerary.
Franschhoek Estate
The Graham Beck Franschhoek Estate is hugely popular for tastings - with its sparkling wine a hot favourite.
Labia
Labia is home to South Africa's oldest-surviving cinema and comes complete with old world-style surroundings. Alcohol can still be bought to take in with you too, which is always nice.
Muratie
Muratie is a romantic winery with a great history; take a cellar tour to learn all about it.
Oude Libertas Amphitheatre
Oude Libertas Amphitheatre is an outdoor venue with a signature sophisticated sound; enjoy choir recitals, acapella groups, jazz and opera.
Rhodes Memorial
Built in mock Athenian architecture, the Rhodes Memorial affords views out beyond the Cape Flats towards the distant distant Helderberg and Hottentots Holland Mountains. If that doesn't take your breath away, nothing will.
Table Mountain
As Cape Town's most iconic sight, you don't need to 'visit' Table Mountain to appreciate its awe-inspiring beauty.
Theatre on the Bay
Theatre on the Bay is a delightfully intimate theatre that puts on a variety of West End-style musicals and smaller-scale dramas, comedies and revues.
