24 Hours in Cape Town

This year, Cape Town set the scene for our summer campaign shoot, but it wasn’t only the new season’s fashions we fell in love with – it was the beautiful surroundings too! So as you search our pages for your fresh fashion fix, and dream of the perfect summer holiday, allow us to transport you away for 24 hours in Cape Town…

10am: Yours Truly


Every day starts with coffee at Primark HQ, so it’s no surprise that we were on the hunt for a major caffeine hit when waking up in this glorious landscape. We headed to Yours Truly on Long Street, and indulged. With a cool rustic vibe, and latte foam to-die-for, this place oozes Instagram chic - we’re already looking forward to heading back.

12pm: Table Mountain


No trip to Cape Town would be complete without a visit to South Africa’s most famous landmark – Table Mountain. Though a view from below is a breath-taking treat, taking in the city’s landscape from 3500ft above ground is what we would recommend. Work up your appetite with a trek to the top, or save time for more tourism treats and relax in the 5-minute cable car ride – bliss!

3pm: Flower Market


A stroll through the Adderley Street Flower Market, tucked in Trafalgar Place alleyway, combined our love for beautiful blooms with an appetite for some Cape Town heritage. With flower stalls handed down from mother to daughter, the over-100-year-old market offered a cultural connection with its wonderful sellers, and gave us major #homegoals inspiration (flowers in every room please)!

5pm: Bo-Kaap


Previously known as the Malay Quarter, the bold and bright houses of the Bo-Kaap neighbourhood were a delicious treat for the eyes. Situated on the slopes of Signal Hill, the combination of candy-coloured buildings with cobbled streets showcased a picture-perfect history of the area’s Muslim community. Home-owners can paint their houses whenever they like as long as there’s variety of colour on the street – tempted anyone?

9pm: Houtbay Harbour


Our city tour ended with a trip to Houtbay Harbour, to take in the scenic views after sunset at the coast. Set within the mountains and looking across the Atlantic Ocean, the harbour proved the ideal destination for some post-sightseeing relaxation. Impressed by the day’s fishing catches and admiring energetic holiday makers swimming and surfing, we could think of no better way to see out our trip.

Having spent our time feasting on delicious food, stunning sights, and fierce fashion trends, it was time to say goodbye to South Africa and head back to our work desks. So ‘til next time Cape Town, we’ll be staring at our camera roll and dreaming of glorious beaches…
