New Regent Street
When first constructed in the 1930s, New Regent Street was famously lauded as “the most beautiful street in New Zealand.” Today, after the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, the street has rebuilt its colorful façade—built in a Spanish Mission style—where colorful, two-story buildings host retailers, restaurants, coffee shops, and cafés. When the street was first built in the Great Depression, only 3 of the original 40 buildings were occupied by lease-paying tenants, due to the economic hardships of the time and the tenants’ inability to pay rent.  Gradually, an increasing number of businesses were established, and the street was reconstructed as a pedestrian mall in 1994. When the fateful Christchurch earthquakes struck, New Regent Street was one of the first places to rebuild and reopen its doors—though many repairs were only temporary and are in need of a permanent fix. Either way, it remains as one of downtown Christchurch’s most popular venues for shopping, with the pastel colored, lightly hued buildings contributing an architectural charm.

Practical Info

New Regent Street is in central Christchurch and is easily accessible by foot. It’s a 10 minute walk from the metro central bus station, and is also accessible by riding the tram, which runs from 10am-5pm daily, with expanded hours in summer.
Address: New Regent Street, Christchurch, New Zealand

Daily City Cycle TourBike & Mountain Bike Tours

Daily City Cycle Tour

star-5
The Daily City Cycle Tour is a great opportunity for everyone who recently arrived in Christchurch and wants to get some orientation around the city, we run the Daily City Cycle Tour in the morning from 9am to 11:00 and in the afternoon from 2pm to 4:00pm. You will see a lot more on a bike than you would walking or driving, a great way to explore the city and plan out your stay. There is a lot of construction activity and plenty of new landscaping worth crediting, plus a combination of heritage sites which have found a new lease of life and state of the art building to admire. The city is made for biking and our local guides will wind through the alleyways, cycle ways and carve through the city pointing out interesting facts and history, especially around the changing urbanscape. Minimum 2 pax.
