Overview

Built in 1905 in the Italian Renaissance style and situated in Darling Street, lies the magnificent Cape Town City Hall. Its 39 bells, the largest carillon in Southern Africa, ring out from the 61 meter high tower on special occasions, giving it the reputation of being a mini replica of London's Big Ben. The organ, with its 3165 pipes, is the pride of the Grand Hall. Sir George Martin, who constructed the organ at St. Paul's Cathedral in London, is responsible for its design. The City Hall today is home to the Cape Town Municipal Library.
