One of the best spots of Auckland with a lot of cafes and restaurants, different cuisines and the best coffee in town!

Parnell Village looks like a Victorian village. Even though we were here in New Zealand's winter, there were flowers and plants everywhere. There are many very nice galleries and shops, with a variety of New Zealand made items. It is a very nice walk and shopping experience.

Visited Parnell as part of a morning drive around. Walked down the entire length of Parnell Road, and enjoyed the variety of shops. Being tourists we enjoyed the touristy shops, of which there were quite a number. The souvenirs we bought were good quality and reasonably priced. Comparing with other places and similar items the Parnel shops were good value.... More

Parnell was worth the visit, took dining at a restaurant in this area as a reason to come to this part of Auckland. The things to see are dotted in the area not a condensed village area that was visualised but was nice wandering around before dinner. If you are short for time during a visit to Auckland or hesitant... More

I'm sure it is a really nice place to live but there wasn't much for visitors to see or do here. There were a few nice shops and nice looking cafes, etc, but it wasn't as quaint or picuresque as I was (for some reason, I'm not sure why) expecting.

I spent a pleasant couple of hours strolling this historic village suburb of Auckland. Highlights included the Anglican Cathedral and Jubilee Hall.
