Whilst it is likely that you will venture out from Green Point to explore the rest of the wonderful city of Cape Town, it is worth spending the day a little further afield in the town of Worcester. Amongst the attractions worth visiting in Worcester is the Kleinplaise Open Air Museum. The museum holds many demonstrations and activities which detail how the first Western Cape pioneers went about their daily lives. Visitors can enjoy demonstrations on how to make soap, roll tobacco and roast coffee as well as experiencing a traditional donkey cart ride around the museum.
Weather is an important factor of any holiday and a Green Point holiday is no exception.

The winter months see the temperature fall to around 19 degrees Celsius and it is during this time that the majority of the precipitation occurs in Green Point (although the amount is very minimal).
