• LOCATION 36 | Cape Town on Foot: From the Slave Lodge to Bo-Kaap

    Turn right into Rose Street

    Turn right at this corner and carry on walking. This is Rose Street.

    You may be disappointed by a very different picture of Bo-Kaap along here, in comparison with the more colourful Chiappini Street. What Rose Street does illustrate is the destruction inflicted on the area by the declaration of the Slums Act of 1934.

    Many old homes disappeared at this time, but the good news is that today the area is being restored and uplifted. As you walk, take note of the blend of old and new. There are several new cafes and art galleries, as well as some older establishments like the colourful Rose Corner Café at the end of this street.

    I'll meet you at the end of this street.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations. Purchase to hear all 38.
