Please note that the Bridge of Remembrance is currently off limits to the public and is to undergo structural alterations to secure its stability in the event of another earthquake. The explanatory boards about the engineering works that will be undertaken may be of interst to those with an engineering bent.

What can I say the bridge is really pretty overlooking the water. The bridge itself suggests a long interesting history just based on its architecture. Worth a look, but keep in mind while Christchurch is still in the process of rebuilding the CBD there's not much else to look at here

The bridge told us a story and the river and we found the surrounding area ideal for picnic lunch. Again with great weather the day we visited we enoyed ourselves.

this is a structure and a bridge and a river and a peaceful place........ALL well worth the diversion, and respects sgould be paid to the citizens of Christchurch who fought for US, the present generation of new Kiwis. I think you'll find this a place of history, a place of beauty and a place to enjoy.

The Bridge of Remembrance is a place to reflect on those who went to War however it's not somewhere to spend a lot of time. At the moment it is fenced off due to potential damage after the Earthquake.
