Nestled just outside the heart of Durban’s city centre, the recently revamped City View Shopping Centre is a favourite new shopping destination in the trendy and popular area of Berea. Formerly known as Game City, the 29 year old Centre has undergone a dramatic revamp and now boasts a stunning modern finish and improved shopping experience offering 18000m² of prime retail space. Built in 1985, City View forms part of many childhood memories. The Centre is rich with history and has experienced many changes over the years, with the most significant being the name change in the latter part of 2009 from Game City to City View Shopping Centre.
The centre boasts spectacular 360° views of the City, including the impressive Moses Mabhida Stadium and was thus aptly named City View. City View hosts a rather unusual gem, a National Monument known as The Queens Tavern. This colonial landmark was built in 1894 and is the oldest licensed premises in the City.
