It's wonderful to see Christchurch revitalizing the city after the quake. The bridge, along the river, and the green space surrounding all of this are just beautiful. Like many things in Christchurch, you won't spend long here but it's worth planning your walking route past...More

We wandered over and around the general area of this bridge and were amazed that the arch was still standing. There is a peaceful feeling around this...and people were strolling slowly, or sitting and just enjoying the feeling there

Bridge of Remembrance is the entrance to the city mall. You can see how the earthquake really effected this town and the shops are still working out of colorful shipping containers.

A wonderful tribute to all the solders that fought for freedom, the notice board next to the bridge gives you same information about the symbols that decorate the bridge.

This bridge is a memorial to those of the Canterbury population who died in the First World War but its location next to the earthquake devastated centre of Christchurch gives it a certain poignancy. Moving

A quiet place and time to think about those who lost their lives in the earthquake. A beautiful wall of remembrance alongside the Avon River. Well worth a visit.

Find the right spot fir your photo. Had construction going on during our visit and lots of people around. Not really very special but it is worth the visit to commemorate those who fought for freedom during the two world wars.
