Christchurch is a city for those in the know. Yes it’s a wonderful launchpad to the South Island; but it is also one of the world’s coolest cities in its own right. Here are some of our suggestions:

City Center

The Tack Rooms is the perfect spot from which to explore the city of Christchurch. Once you turn the corner you will find Victoria Street with a selection of cafes, restaurants and bars.  Or meander along the Avon River and discover The Terrace and the Riverside Market on Oxford Terrace for an array of retail, fresh produce, dining and nightlife options. From here the entertainment precinct is nearby, with the Christchurch tram stopping at Armagh Street for guests wanting to ride the historic tram circuit and see the CBD from a different perspective.
