Bridgewater Apartments benefit from being in Century City, Cape Town’s 250 hectare privately managed precinct just 10 minutes east of the CBD. Whether you’re arriving by private vehicle, taxi, Uber or even by train, you’ll find it effortless to reach your destination in the upmarket Bridgeways district of Century City. And if you plan to explore the wonderful variety of CapeTown’s top attractions, you couldn’t ask for a better base: centrally located and conveniently linked to major freeways in all directions.
If you’re not travelling in a private motor vehicle, we would recommend getting to Bridgewater Apartments by Uber or metered taxis. Both services will offer reliable, safe and relatively affordable fares from the CBD, the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Town International Airport.
From Bridgewater Apartments, it is easy to reach the attractions of the Century City precinct. Day or night, it is safe to walk practically anywhere in this privately managed estate with its extensive network of constantly monitored CCTV cameras. Roads and walking trails are well sign-posted and well-lit, and open up many beautiful views and natural areas. Walking will also give you the opportunity to see the outdoor art works of the Century City Art Trail.
If you’re staying in Century City for a while, it would be a great idea to hire a bicycle for use both within the estate or to get down to the beaches of Milnerton or even into Cape Town along the dedicated cycle lane that runs through Paarden Eiland and Woodstock.
Another way to get around Century City itself is on the MyCiTi busses that run around the ring road of Century City regularly — which is also a very convenient way to get from Century City to the West Coast, the CBD and the V&A Waterfront. You’ll find a MyCiTi bus stop on the Century City Boulevard, less than 250 metres from Bridgewater Apartments.
