If you can get a lift up to the top of Signal Hill then you will not be dissapointed, although not anywhere near as high as Table Mountain it still offers superb views of the bays and coast line, ideal if you want to take some photographs, the route up is hairy as ther are no road side kerbs and isn't very wide...but its well worth visiting.

Stunning views of downtown Capetown at night make this worth a trip, especially if you have a car but I'm sure a cab would only cost a few pounds.
We couldn't find anywhere specific to park so just pulled up at the side of the road. Very dark up here at night with no street lighting so probably not a place/time to let kids run around.

Take a trip up signal hill at night and marvel at the lights and sights of Cape Town. Top of Signal hill is very busy during the day and can be unpleasant but the nights are stunning.

Signal Hill has the most spectacular, mind-blowing view of the Cape. You will obviously appreciate it the most @ night, where you are greeted with the most colourful and gorgeous, and also quite romantic view, depending on who you are experiencing this with! Will totally bowl you over!!! Beauty @ its best!!!
