  • Pretty small market. A lot of very similar shops. Worth going in if you're passing but wouldn't go out of your way to stop here. A few good food options as well and several tables to sit at.
  • The only part left of Wellington's team system. Currently has two new cars that operate as a counterbalance to each other. They travel up a steep hill from Lambton Quay. A museum on top provides a history of the system including to of the older cars refurbished. Views at the top of the city and harbour are spectacular on sunny days. It's a good way to spend part of an afternoon.
  • One of the best local artisan market in Wellington. Lot of great, amazing and unique stuffs available here. My favourite is wax melts and candle collections available. Great fragrances on a reasonable price. Enjoy shopping with some tasty local food!!
  • Great craft market, local crafters with unique products and great food. Situated right on the waterfront
  • I wonderful verity of real arts and crafts on display. Beats the typical Auckland Markets hands down
