Cuba street is the walking street. I wouldn't call this a shopping district but there are many interesting shops. You can find cheap towels in Japanese shop or incense in famous Cosmic. (Cosmic also has a discount shop here). I'd see matchbox art gallery as well. It makes a nice walk fir a sunny day (pic from matchbox)

were told to go here for a visit and maybe I missed the point but didn't really find anything here of interest. Headed back to the shops on Lambton Quay. Was a nice stroll around though. Thought this would have been the place to get a nice coffee. Not to be though.

This area takes on a different persona from day to night. It is shopping and interesting characters during the day. At night it is dining mecca. There are more attractive restaurants on this street than it would be possible to sample in a very long time. But what fun it would be to try!

Cuba St is a must do and just take time to wander along to take it all in. Nice food, great shopping of all kinds. Retro clothing, 2nd hand, you name it. We also went to the night food market on Friday night and got some yummy food in a fun atmosphere.

Cuba Street goes through phases where it can be the most attractive place in Wellington to be - or alternatively it can be the worst. Cuba Street was once a buzzing street of shoppers, exciting and crowd catching buskers and great places to eat. However at the moment Cuba Street is filled with people trying to hustle spare change or... More

Cuba Street has an excellent range of shops and visual attractions to keep the whole family busy for half a day. The shops are interesting - a mix between quirky and traditional, with a few eating establishments scattered throughout the area.

Nice places to eat and have dinner or lunches, café style or bars. Very clean and tidy although a little old and dreary, as an older part of the city. Cuba Street Night market on Friday night is really good entertainment. Plenty of food stalls to choose from, yummy deserts, and drinks. Usually a band or music playing also. Good... More
