Nice mall, but be careful around this area, it is not the safest for tourist, these days, make sure you go in large groups.

An easy way to get from one side of the city to another as it is mainly a pedestrian mall with fine shops selling goods and services. St Georges Mall use to be a city street running parallel with Adderley street, but as big business moved to new parts of the city it became more tourist friendly with a myriad... More

Lots of interesting shops either side of the mall, and plenty of stalls in the middle, offering all kinds of wares...some pretty and covetable, many rather tawdry and cheap...be careful with your bag...lots of pickpockets around.

We stumbled across a weekly lunch market at St. Georges Mall while we were walking by on a Thursday afternoon and we were so happy we did. Filled with independent, local food vendors and great for foodies. Great for eating and people-watching while you listed to the live band. Sandwiches, pastries, biltong, fried foods, smoothies - something tasty for everyone.

What an excellent idea it was to pedestrianise this street as now the informal traders have a well demarcated area where they can sell their wares and shoppers can move around without cars whizzing past them. The mall starts very close to the St George's cathedral presinct and goes all the way down to the station - there are all... More

We strolled the length of St George's Mall a few times. Each time the passage seemed busy and lively. There are numerous stores, restaurants and merchant stalls. Everybody takes a photo with the somewhat weird statue with multiple heads of Bart Simpson.

Pretty pedestrianised road through the centre of the city. Good range of shops and malls with local craft stalls long the way selling the usual tourist stuff.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn which on St George's Mall. We walked around, It is a nice pedestrian mall with some street vendors. Nice, but nothing spectacular.

Prior to my trip with my 14 year old daughter I was advised that Cape Town, South Africa is unsafe and to be careful of this and that. To be honest - I have never felt safer. There is security on every corner, yet not once in my 8 day trip did I witness anything unsavoury. In fact, the people... More

St Georges Mall is a colourful and long street that runs through the center of Cape Town. Loads of shops, restaurants, street vendors, hotels, bars etc are along it's length. A pedestrian only stretch of road in this most beautiful of cities, St Georges Mall is worth visiting
