Long Street Tours

1 review
Long Street is a major, buzzing thoroughfare located in the City Bowl part of Cape Town. Both commercial yet bohemian, Long Street is lined with secondhand bookstores, antique shops, and independent boutiques, which give way to a lively party scene of bars, clubs, and various international restaurants come nightfall.

Along with this heady mix of commercial stores and nightlife options is the Palm Tree Mosque, which dates back to the end of the 18th century. There’s also the oldest Mission church in South Africa, as well as Cape Town’s newest public art installation, the Open House.

The buildings themselves are Victorian in style, many featuring traditional wrought-iron balconies. The most attractive part of the road can be found between the junction with Buitensingel Street, running north to Strand Street. During the 1970s and 1980s, there were a number of theaters showing anti-apartheid productions situated along Long Street, although most were closed to be replaced by restaurants or stores by the 1990s.

Practical Info

Long Street lies between Loop and Adderley Streets in Cape Town’s city center. If not staying in the area, the easiest way to reach it is by taking a taxi.
