By car, coming in on the N1 and N2, past the harbour to the traffic lights (says right to the Waterfront). Don't turn right but continue straight up Buitengracht street through 6 sets of traffic lights after which the road dips to the left and becomes New Church Street. We are 50 meteres along on the right, no. 82. Look for the Zebra Stripes on the wall and park next door.
Between Table Mountain and the Waterfront.
