Plenty shops and restaurants spread out over a few Km. of passages on multiple levels. Well lit, signposted and clean. Plenty parking. Pervasive sense of security for relaxed shopping in a very pleasant and attractive environment. Some large popular outlets on the outskirts. Easy to spend the whole morning or afternoon here, shopping and relaxing.

My wife and I visited Canal Walk on a trip to Cape Town. To simply walk from end to end and all the floors will already take quite a bit of time.

Took my son to Cape Town for the long weekend. Went to Canal Walk to get a few things. Got most of the clothes in Stuttafords. Amazing service. Friendly staff. Definitely going back there.

Always have to walk alot in this shopping centre to get to the shop you need, R10 parking is also a pain most shopping centres give first hour free or do not charge.

I never know how to review a shopping center. Many shops but a bit of a confusion regards to layout. If you enjoy shopping I'm sure this would be a great experience.

If you are in Cape Town and are keen to shop for a bit of everything, then head to Canal Walk. Contemporary shopping as well as a few places which sell some traditional African goods combined with a great variety of places to eat.

Canal walk is the biggest, much attractive and best shopping center. Enjoy the endless shopping and the view of the lake outside. It has many world famous shops and you would happily spend your whole day there.

Canal Walk Shopping Centre is my favourite location- variety of shops, restaurants and you can obtain everything you need from a to z. Located in pittoresque Century City is a plus factor and as soon as you enter the Shopping Centre you get a wow feeling and can spend hours without being bored.
