The old Cape Town suburb of Woodstock was once regarded as fading but is now a sought after, vibrant suburb with easy access into the city. A newly established bus route, popular markets, world class restaurants, craft beer brewers and converted churches has transformed the suburb. Many of the dilapidated old buildings have been completely renovated.
Regeneration began with the old Biscuit Mill which is now on the tourist map. Later, an international advertising agency built their headquarters there and so began an entire business district. Young professionals began snapping up apartments. Although some of the old houses and many old shops still remain, they bring a unique character to this most desirable suburb.
In the old residential section, children play on the side streets and house owners paint their homes vivid primary colours. Tiny shops fronting the area are freshly painted with beverage brands and graffiti artists claim the side walls. Small businesses cram into properties barely the size of large cupboards, happily trading with their regulars.
With Table Mountain as a backdrop and Table Bay directly opposite, Woodstock is a fantastic destination for travelers.
Things to do

Visit the District Six museum to learn the history behind forced removals of over 60000 people from this area. Take the guided tour and a chance to walk the suburb and interact with those that were affected.
