The Company’s Gardens is a beautiful park and heritage site in Cape Town that was originally created in the 1650s by the region’s first European settlers and provided fertile ground to grow fresh produce to replenish ships rounding the Cape. These days it is a popular destination for those looking for a welcome break from big city life. Enjoy leisurely walks along the tree-lined paths while taking in more than 8000 species of plants contained in the Company’s Garden, before stopping for tea and cake at the tea room. Besides being home to The South African National Gallery, it is also a popular venue for festivals such as the annual Cape Town Festival.
