  • We saw entry was half price during winter so we took the family. Rod the trains, trams and trolley busses, plus got a couple of coffees and only spent $44. So good!
  • Interesting place to walk around and check out old exibits
  • I enjoy seeing and reading about history and this place has lots of that on offer. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

Where to stay in Christchurch

Offering an extensive range of hotels, hostels, motels with kitchens, and campsites, Christchurch makes a great place to set up camp as you explore the city and beyond. The greatest diversity of accommodations clusters in the city center next to North and South Hagley parks. You'll find apartments, boutique and luxury hotels, and backpacker hostels in the central district and towards the coast, while cheaper places to stay--such as motels, RV parks, and economy hotels--dot the outskirts and the area surrounding the airport.
