Capetown & The Garden Route - East City, District Six, Woodstock, & Observatory (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the East City, District Six, Woodstock & Observatory chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cape Town & the Garden Route guidebook.

East of the City Bowl are the empty lots of District Six, the working-class, industrial suburbs that are regenerating, with creative industries, cafes and bars clustered at the East City end. Woodstock is the canvas for striking street art, and a hub for the blooming craft-beer scene, and bohemian Observatory makes a great base for budget travellers.

  • maps
  • browse the Old Biscuit Mill for retail therapy and gourmet eats
  • transport
  • learn about Cape Town’s troubled past at the District Six Museum, which is as much for the people of the destroyed inner city as it is about them

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Explore East City, District Six, Woodstock & Observatory, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
