The arts centre has been around for quite a while... But it still hasn't fully recovered from the 2011 earthquake, only about 60% back to normal. There's art galleries, small handicraft shops and the i-site.

This is something very different. The building is beautiful and the arts and crafts are the same. We caught the tram from here.

My husband and I spent a weekend being tourists in our own city, and spent some time exploring all that’s on offer in this collection of heritage buildings which are undergoing extensive restoration work after the earthquakes of 2011. Although not fully completed yet, much of the space is again fully functioning, and offers much to experience and explore. A hilight for my husband was looking at the carvings on the lecture desks in Rutherford’s Den, and just exploring the buildings themselves which are so rich in history and craftsmanship for this young country. We sampled great gelato at Rollickin, made a purchase at Pepa Stationery, and took in a movie and drink in the bar of the Gadsby inspired Lumiere Theatre. My husband found a vintage denim shirt to his liking and bought that, and I found the most beautiful NZ made handcream I’ve ever had! The brunch and coffee at Bunsen Cafe was excellent too. There’s much to love about this place, and so worth taking the time to explore, I couldn’t believe that it is run by a private trust with every dollar spent on its restoration having to be raised by the trust with no Government assistance!

Enjoyed visiting the Arts Centre again after the restoration on the buildings after the Earthquakes. The contractors have made a wonderful job restoring it back exactly if not better than the buildings were originally. Good to see some of the original shops and some new ones back in there. Will be visiting regularly to see the new shops and services joining in to make this such an interesting and enjoyable place to visit.
