“A magnificent building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

Okay, so it is just a building. If you are not a fan of architecture, then give it a miss. But if you like old buildings heavily decorated and dominated by a wonderful clock tower, take a quick look at the Cape Town City Hall. In the afternoon the sunshine lights up Table Mountain as a backdrop, which is very impressive. I enjoyed a visit and taking a few photos of this 1905-vintage building.

“A grand old building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

The last time I was there the building badly needed renovation. The seats were uncomfortable and one can not always see the stage. Full marks to the concerts which are held there most weeks . International artists perform often in this hall and we have a very good orchestra which is based in this building.
