Sadly it seems that every time we visit the castle it falls apart a little more. Yet, it is still a must-see for anyone interested in the history of Cape Town. The museum inside the mansion shows authentic furniture from the 17th century. The torture chamber and dungeon is a good reminder of what the castle's original purpose was, as a military base. I'd recommend you visit at the correct time for a guided tour as you'd get more value for money and time instead of wandering around matching pieces of the tour together to get a full picture. There is no shade and no cover so be prepared for a hot visit on sunny days. The castle is located in the heart of Cape Town and is therefore easily accessible. If you are near to the Sea Point or Waterfront area, it is a bit of a walk getting there, albeit an easy one, but taxis and the red bus/city sightseeing tour stops right there.
