Although the street is 300-metre long, it's the way to find the Museum, Christ School, and the i-site on one side, while you walk you can see old houses and buildings as well as a small market to reach the art gallery on the opposite...More

This is a beautiful street with many different types of buildings. The museum is at one end with many wooden houses and the art gallery. Doesn't take long so worth just having a look.

The Gothic cathedral at one end, and the Gothic museum at the other is a fantastic sight, marred slightly by the protrudence of the new art gallery. Unfortunately, the quakes and bishop have ruined the cathedral but if sense prevails, the view will return.

An interesting and quirky part of town. Lots of gallery's, museums and coffee shops. At the time of my visit there was a big rebuild going on. A great place to explore, enroute to the botanical gardens.

Worcester Boulevard is a great walking area that is Christchurch's arts precinct. Taking you up to the Botanical Gardens there are a good number of places to explore in the street as well as there being tram stops.

This is a lovely street to have a nice stroll in. Begin from cathedral square, walk on the bridge over the Avon river and continue towards the botanical gardens. The street features the tram route, several (closed) museums and galleries and several open market style...More

Stopped here for breakfast and coffee. Coffee is reasonable, but the food selection from the cabinet was quite limited and the croissant I had was average, staff seemed bored, I think there are better places in Christchurch.
