Harfield Village lies in the heart of Cape Town’s southern suburbs. Tucked away between Claremont and Kenilworth, it is bordered by Imam Haron Road, Kenilworth Road, Harfield Road and Rosmead Avenue. It is just a few minutes away from the Claremont CBD and less than half an hour from the City Centre.

This location makes it extremely central and accessible. Thanks to the railway that runs along Harfield Road and the multiple exit points, it is quick and easy to get in and out of the village.

Location, Location, Location

Location is everything, especially where you live. While many are working remotely now, others are still going into the office each day. Harfield Village’s accessibility to the City Centre means that you can enjoy a relaxed village lifestyle without spending hours in traffic.

Nearby attractions to be found in easy reach of the village include the following:

  • Kenilworth Centre. A well-positioned shopping centre that is in close reach of the village. Here you will find a variety of shops, banks, facilities, and a Virgin Active gym.
  • Cavendish Square. This upmarket shopping centre is home to a huge variety of stores, restaurants, coffee shops, banks and other facilities. It is just a few minutes drive from the village (and within walking distance, too).
  • Arderne Gardens. Situated on Main Road in Claremont, this public park is home to ancient trees, meandering paths, a duck pond and plenty of greenery.
  • Newlands Forest. This forest is home to various hiking trails and paths for all levels of hiker, along with picnic areas and braai areas.
  • Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. A short drive away in Newlands, you will find Kirstenbosch – one of the Cape’s most renowned botanical gardens. 
  • Baxter Theatre. The Baxter is in Rondebosch. We hope that this cultural landmark will resume shows once lockdown comes to an end! It is the best place to enjoy local arts and culture.
  • Groot Constantia. About half an hour away lies Groot Constantia – the oldest wine estate in Cape Town. It’s definitely another place to add to your post-COVID lockdown to-see list.

You will find plenty more to do in the Cape Town City Bowl area, while the Atlantic Seaboard and its iconic attractions such as Camps Bay, the V&A Waterfront and Clifton are about half an hour away, too.

Going southwards, you will find the beautiful False Bay area. This is where you will find iconic seaside favourites such as Kalk Bay – home to cafes, shops and a beachfront walk.

If you’re new to the area, you will soon see that location is everything when it comes to life in Harfield Village.
