Cape Town, fondly known as the Mother City, is an award-winning travel destination, owing to its abundant natural beauty, Table Mountain, pristine beaches, its cosmopolitan city centre, nearby wine-producing districts, as well as a strong arts and culture scene and an abundance of excellent restaurants and other points of interest. It is also recognised as a top business destination, with thriving African startups, high-tech facilities, media companies and other world-class amenities dotted around the city.
The Sea Point region, where The Winchester Hotel is located, grew as a residential suburb in the early 1800s and, in 1839, was merged into a single municipality with neighbouring Green Point, where the Cape Town Stadium is found. Sea Point is famous for its lengthy promenade, which hugs the coast from Granger Bay to Bantry Bay, and is popular among fitness enthusiasts and families. The suburb is abuzz with trendy coffee shops, eateries, boutiques and vintage clothing stores. Other major attractions in the area include the Sea Point pavilion and pools, the MOJO Market and the lawns and pathways along the promenade, perfect for leisure activities — all within walking distance of The Winchester Hotel.
