Company's Gardens offer a beautiful and peaceful refuge from the bustling city streets. With history all around and in the centre of town, this is well worth a visit and has an excellent cafe where drinks, cakes or lunch can be enjoyed under the shade of the lush treescape.

Beautiful gardens set in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Feeding the squirrels and reading a bit of the history add to the charm of this landmark - definitely recommend a visit!

Beautiful to stroll through, sit or chill. Different areas to look at and amuse yourselves. A cafe is available for a refreshment should you wish. A great venue, very central to take some time out in a busy holiday schedule.

Good place to wonder around. Should go earlier as park was soon closing. Need to go back and explore the trees and other vegetation. There is what looks like an abandoned church the would be cool to wonder around also. Beautiful parliament building but cannot enter grounds Nice place to relax and spend a lazy day

The Company's Gardens are within walking distance of most hotels in the city, and are well worth a visit. They have a lovely tea room/dining area in the park with very reasonable prices. Lots of squirrels around, as well as ducks and plenty of wild birds, both flying free and in display cages. Big old trees give a very tranquil... More

The story of the Garden is integral to the history of Cape Town, which is interesting. It's also surrounded by museums, so a good central point. The green grounds, the trees, and the decorative flowerbeds make it a pleasant place to walk. But keep your eyes open and stay on the well traveled walkways. There were a lot of homeless... More

These gardens are just lovely - and learning about their history made our wander through even better. If you have an hour to spare, then enjoy a walk through the gardens.
