Originally home to a trading store and housed in a 19th Century Cape settlement, Old Nick Village is the landmark destination of the Garden Route. So much more than a shopping centre this is a truly sensory experience for the whole family as well as the discerning shopper. The galleries and shops are nestled amongst lush and established indigenous gardens. Resident fine artists and master crafters showcase their work in an eclectic combination of locally inspired design to enhance a creative lifestyle.

This place is food for the soul and is a retail theatre of talent and imagination. Children can run free in the magical gardens enhanced by a wonderful climbing sculpture.

Expect the unexpected – a lazy musical afternoon on the lawns, a special exhibition or an encounter with resident birds or the occasional Vervet monkeys.

We have restrooms for the disabled with many stores and the restaurant accessible for wheelchairs.
