V&A Waterfront Reviews
More info about V&A Waterfront
The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town is one of the city's most popular tourist attractions.
It is also South Africa's oldest working harbour; construction started in 1860. The first basin to be built was named Alfred after Prince Alfred, who was the second son of Queen Victoria, and the second basin was named after Queen Victoria herself . Hence the name Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
Today the harbour is filled with fabulous yachts of the rich and famous, visiting cruise ships, tour boats, and of course the massive container ships off-loading their precious cargo.
As well as boat tours and yachts, there is plenty to do in around the V&A with many cultural, historical and other entertainments, as well as a fabulous shopping centre with views over the sea.
