Noon Gun information
At noon, Monday to Saturday, a cannon is fired from the lower slopes of 350m-high Signal Hill, which separates Sea Point from the City Bowl; you can hear it all over town. Traditionally, this allowed the burghers in the town below to check their watches. It’s a stiff walk up here through the Bo-Kaap – take Longmarket St and keep going until it ends, just beneath the gun emplacement (which is off limits) – the view is phenomenal.
You can also drive or take a taxi up Signal Hill along Military Rd, accessed of Kloof Nek Rd.
