With stories galore, very little about the castle is as it initially seems. Free walking tours are available and definitely worth it inside

The Castle of Good Hope has preserved many of its original seventeenth century structural features. Within its walls you can see examples of Dutch classicist and early Cape Dutch architecture together with colonial motifs.

History Museum
“If you are a tourist looking for the history and reason for Cape Town, I strongly suggest you begin your CapeTown tour here! This is good insight into the forced removal of residents & demolition of houses under the apartheid government in the 1970's. Some of the tour guides live to tell the stories.”

Park
“I don't have the words except that we love to walk and and enjoy the beauty mixed with historic buildings. Quote :There is so much to explore in terms of history inside the garden. Near the Adderley Street entrance a statue of Queen Victoria stands overlooking the Slave Lodge, while a statue of Jan Smuts looks on. Just over the road is the St George’s Cathedral, known as the “people’s church”—even during the apartheid era, all races were welcomed. It was also the starting point for the 30,000-strong demonstration led by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 1989—and where Tutu coined the phrase ‘rainbow people’ to describe the diversity of South Africa’s population. The Garden is also home to the South African Museum and the Cape Town Holocaust Centre here, where you can view exhibits about the atrocities suffered by Jews during World War II. Beyond that, there are dozens of little historical treasures you’d easily miss if you weren’t looking for them. There is the Rutherford Fountain—which still stands on the original spot where it was erected in 1864—and the well pump embedded in an oak tree which dates back to 1842. There’s also the oldest cultivated tree in South Africa—a saffron pear, propped up on huge steel crutches. ”

Botanical Garden
“Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens Boasting as 'the most beautiful garden in Africa', Cape Town's Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens definitely has a right to the claim. Situated on the eastern side of Table Mountain, this luscious green paradise is a haven of cool in sometimes hot Cape Town. Far more than just a garden, the 528 hectare estate is home to a startling variety of plants, birds, and animals.”

Aquarium
“A must do visit!! The southern tip of the African continent is the meeting place of two mighty and bountiful oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans.'”
