The famous Cape Wheel is without a doubt one of the V&A Waterfront’s top attractions. This Valentine’s Day they’re stepping it up a notch by giving you and your partner the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable picnic in the sky.

Here’s how it works – Collect a picnic basket from the Cape Wheel (1 basket per 2 people) and fill it with delicious goodies, snacks & treats from the V&A Food Market or any of your favourite stores. They will set up a table in your gondola and extend your ride to double the length (30 minutes) to give you enough time to sit back, relax, snack and soak up the spectacular views with your special Valentine right beside you. Is there anything more romantic than that?
