Canal Walk

Canal Walk is a 125 000 m² shopping centre in Cape Town, South Africa, built around a series of canals. The centre forms the heart of a mixed-use development known as Century City, which includes office blocks, residential areas and the Ratanga Junction theme park.

Canal Walk is the largest shopping centre in Africa in lettable area (Gateway Centre in Durban is larger in total area) and the Sandton City complex in Johannesburg is larger if you include the Nelson Mandela Square annex. Built in what the developers call "Cape Venetian architecture", the shopping centre hosts over 400 stores, numerous restaurants, 20 cinemas plus a game arcade and the MTN Sciencentre, an interactive science centre which in 2007 applied to the Guinness Book of World Records for the world's largest cellphone.

The centre opened in 2000 and appeals to the mass of tourists that visits Cape Town regularly from all over the world.
