Travel Places: City Hall, Cape Town

Last Friday I attended the Loeries Seminar at Cape Town’s City Hall. This building is by far my favourite piece of history in Cape Town.

Having been there on several occasions, mostly to listen to the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and that one time we had a Halloween party there, it never disappoints.

Situated in the center of Cape Town, this building opened it’s doors in 1905. It has a typical Edwardian architecture, making it grand and another Cape Town beauty. The honey-coloured oolitic limestone was imported all the way from Bath, in England. Not an easy task, especially in 1905.

The building is a stone’s throw away from the well know Castle of Good Hope, an easy stop for any Cape Town traveller. Local or International.
