  • Since the earthquake repairs have been finished in part of the centre it really looks amazing. A fantastic job. The tourist office is now located here as I found by chance  more »
  • Where the piece was formerly Christchurch's representative tourist attractions have been repaired now, and not quite often. The building itself is similar to Christ Church Cathedral, is very beautiful.

  • The buildings are slowly being brought back to life after the quake damage. There are a few you can now walk around. The room with the art works in was a total disappointed.  more »

  • I haven't been into the arts centre since before the earthquakes. It is now a far cry from the ripped open tower above le cafe, with the exposed bell tolling from aftershocks. Obviously there has been a massive reconstruction brick by brick since then. It was actually a delight to walk in the completed courtyard with confidence in the buildings. The newly opened great hall is well worth a visit with the stunning stained glasd windows. The arts centre had not lost it soul, and the voices of the past still speak.
  • Lovely setting. Good coffee and food. Friendly staff.
  • Love this place but Way too hot and stuffy in great hall for buskers performance. Will not go there again in summer
  • The buildings are slowly being brought back to life after the quake damage. There are a few you can now walk around. The room with the art works in was a total disappointed.
  • The radio said it was coming back to life but its sad and flat. The great hall is beautiful. Still a way to go before its former beauty.
