Located on the Grand Parade in Cape Town city centre, Cape Town City Hall Cape Town City Hall, Kapstadt, Westkap, Südafrika is a large Edwardian building built in 1905 from honey-coloured oolitic limestone imported from Bath in England.

An Organ made from mahogany, teak and pine wood, with 3.165 pipes was installed. The tower of the City Hall has a Turret Clock which strikes the hours and chimes the Westminster quarters.

The offices of the City of Cape Town are no longer located inside the building which has become a central venue for creative and cultural events.
