Cape Town City Hall


The Cape Town City Hall is one of the centrepieces of the city. The majestic Edwardian building was constructed in 1905 using honey-coloured sandstone imported from Bath in England. The City Hall has 39 bells making it one of the largest carillons* in South Africa. It was from the balcony of the City Hall that Nelson Mandela first addressed South Africa and the world, after spending 27 years in prison. On February 11th in 1990, almost 250 000 people crammed the ‘Grand Parade’ in front of the hall to celebrate the release of the country’s future president. A true public building, the City Hall holds a place in the hearts of many South Africans.

*A carillon is a musical instrument composed of at least 23 carillon cast bronze bells in fixed suspension, that when sounded together create a harmonic melody.
