"The Strip" Cafes and Bars. Christchurch - South Island


Christchurch is the South Island's largest city and is located on the East Coast of the island.
Famous for its Cathedral Square in the centre of the city, Christchurch is often referred to as "more English than an English city".

Central Christchurch is very picturesque and is full of trees, parks and lovely gardens. No wonder the local council promotes it as the Garden City.

With a population over just over 200,000, Christchurch is small enough to still have that friendly New Zealand feel to it.

Christchurch has many hotels, motels and backpackers and activities for the visitor.
