Woodstock is possibly the most diverse and most integrated district of Cape Town both racially and in terms of income. Originally built as a suburb of the City Bowl to house coloured workers, it then developed into a light industrial area and for a long time was the centre of the local textile industry as well as several other local manufacturing businesses.
These days the old factories have been turned into yuppie apartment blocks, upmarket and off-the-wall shopping centers or markets and unusual office / multipurpose spaces.
Despite its proximity to the City Bowl, Woodstock is not yet an area that is safe to walk around in day and night. You will need to take a taxi to a location of your choosing and then take another taxi to the next place (within reason: some of these places are 100m apart so no need in that instance)
