The Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre is the shopping hub of Cape Towns Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. The mall is a series of huge warehouses that have been tastefully converted into a tourist Mecca.
The Victoria Wharf boasts a diverse shopping experience that ranges from exclusive international brands such as Louis Vuitton to local craft shops where you can watch the products being made before your eyes. Everything from restaurants, boutique accessory outlets, speciality hobby shops, and unique local crafts, are here, and they're open quite late every day of the week.
The Red Shed, Blue Shed and Waterfront Trading Company are definitely worth a visit if local and African arts and crafts (fine art, township art, traditional bead work, and fine jewellery) are your thing. The King's Warehouse will definitely tempt your palate with the variety of food options available (and definitely stop in at the biltong bar to enjoy one of the most popular snack foods in South Africa - for those not in the know, biltong is cured, dried, and spiced meat that tastes far more incredible than any bland American styled jerky ever could).
Other shopping clusters scattered around the V&A waterfront include the Clock Tower Precinct and the Pierhead.
