You walk in the busy and noisy streets of Cape Town into the tranquility of St George’s cathedral. The stained glass windows are very impressive. The kids enjoyed walking the labyrinth in the courtyard.

The connection of this cathedral with Desmond Tutu and the end of the Apartheid movement is inescapable. It's easily accessed in the downtown area.
