Walking Cape Town: Urban walks and drives in the Cape Peninsula is based on the places you will see and experience when you explore Cape Town on foot or during a road tour, and explains how they fit into the tapestry of Cape Town's history. The chapters start with a series of urban walks and then proceed to places that need transport to access. In some cases, a combination of walking and driving will provide the best experience. Distance and degree of physical effort as well as facilities available along the route are included in each chapter. Street names and the names of buildings change with time and wherever possible street numbers have been supplied. Detailed illustrated maps have been provided, showing the main landmarks discussed in the text as well as public transport facilities, where these exist. Start and finish points are clearly marked on each map. The author has included information about Table Mountain but has specifically avoided mountain walks and hikes, as there are some excellent books that cover this specialised subject.
