Owner description: This street has always been Cape Town’s main street, from its earliest days as an elegant shady walkway to its present dense throng of storefronts.

Adderley street in the centre of Cape Town is also it's main street. There is nothing special about it as it is always crowded and there are many hawker stalls along the pavements. Having said that it does have some redeeming aspects - the xmas lights during the festive season - a famous section with flower sellers and a few monuments.

There is also a night market where the street is closed to all traffic in the evenings and a semi carnival atmosphere happens usually around the new year. The length of Adderley street has a unique cycle lane - the only completely dedicated one in SA and also hosts the Cape mistral parade on 2nd January each year.

Experience the hustle and bustle of Cape Town during the week as people commute via Adderly street and walk the streets on their way to local businesses.

a busy and full of energy piece of road, lots happening and a constant buzz of movement and change. This road connected many people to the various parts of the city and most people frequent this space... the flower sellars realy make the street buzz with colours and smells etc. Extremely busy but a lovely road.
