Cape Town – a city like no other, but that’s easy to say. Do any world cities really resemble one another? Of course not, so they are all unique. But Cape Town has things which will truly amaze you. How many cities do you know that:
  • have a population under 4 million but have a national park five times the size of the city centre right in the middle of them?
  • allow you to swim with penguins, spot whales, climb a mountain and dive with sharks on the same day?

Being based at Parker, you’re uniquely placed to get to grips with Cape Town. Right from your front door, in around ten minutes, you can walk safely to:
  • Over 100 muesums, art galleries, markets and exhibitions
  • A staggering array of architectural examples from 17th century Cape Dutch manor houses to 1930s Art Deco masterpieces
  • Three verdant and shady parks, one with its own botanical garden.
  • Over 300 restaurants and eateries serving probably the widest range (both in terms of style of food and standard) at the most competitive prices you will find anywhere in the world
  • A huge choice of clothing, craft, interiors and antique boutiques
  • Two theatres, three cinemas, an opera house, and over 100 bars, nightclubs and cabarets.


Once you start using taxis or buses, in less than ten minutes from Parker Cottage Guesthouse you can:
  • Climb or ride up Table Mountain, perhaps the most iconic mountain silhouette in the world
  • Take a ferry across Table Bay to Robben Island, the birthplace of South Africa’s democratic revolution
  • The beautiful beaches of Camps Bay, Clifton and Bantry Bay


And then, there are the day trips! In around thirty to forty five minutes by car/bus from Parker Cottage Guesthouse, you can:
  • Drive down the Cape Peninsula: an inspirational mix of vineyards, botanical gardens, sleepy fish towns and coastal wilderness.
  • Head off to the Cape Winelands, which are so much more than just wine. The food and scenery and the pace of life will enchant you.
  • Zoom up the West Coast to lonely desert and quaint coastal towns
  • Stretch yourself in the lush fruit growing areas and mountains of the Cederburg.
