Below the railway line, between Kenilworth & Claremont, lies Harfield Village. A dense suburb, it is safe and cherished by those who stay, and work there. In among the houses, there are a variety of quirky restaurants that serve delicious breakfasts & lunches and some that are firm family favourites for dinner.

Recognised by the City of Cape Town, The Harfield Village Association (HVA) was established in 1996 and is the official community representative of the area. HVA’s aim is to safeguard the special heritage and unique character of Harfield Village, one of the few urban conservation (heritage) sites left in Cape Town.

The HVA also works closely with the Harlyn (Harfield Lynfrae) Neighbourhood Watch, the Claremont Police Station and Community Policing Forum with a view to making the area safe to live and work in. 

This densely populated area runs from Lansdowne Road (soon to renamed Imam Haron Road) until Kenilworth Road and from Rosmead Avenue up until the Southern suburbs railway line.

The area is bordered by a number of roads; check the list to see if you fall into Harfield Village:
