The earthquake that hit Christchurch six years ago ;not only killed 185 people as a result of falling bricks and buildings, but it also severely damaged this memorial to New Zealanders killed in past wars. It stands out because it is so unlike the newer buildings around it, evoking the time of the First World War in its design. It... More

Visiting the Bridge of Remembrance it was an interesting mix of old and new. The rebuild works from the earthquakes go on around the bridge area and the permanent repairs are made. The Bridge was a short stop on many of the sites around Christchurch and was part of a very enjoyable day

This was a really nice bridge - was incredible, especially with the backdrop of newer, modern buildings in the background.

We were walking along the river and crossed the road to see this magnificent memorial to the fallen. I was surprised at how many war memorials there are throughout New Zealand but we should never forget and it seems every town and city lost people. Impressive piece of work.

This memorial, like so many around Christchurch, is well worth a visit. So much of Christchurch was destroyed in the 2011 earthquake, it is good to visit as many memorials as one can

Next to ReStart, the Bridge was originally a memorial to the veterans of the First World War and then for all the subsequent conflicts New Zealand was involved in. It is a dramatic monument, recently opened in 2016 and worth a visit to honour those that have fallen

This bridge is beautiful. Right in the centre of town, near the mall. Practically impossible to miss.

A powerful reminder of N Z history, situated not far from the Cathedral and a must see for tourists.

After ages being closed, the Bridge of Remembrance is open again, looking better than ever - especially as they have now got rid of those horrid brown tiles at the Cambridge Terrace side.

Amazing how this has survived the earthquake. A beautiful structure over the lovely river Avon. It lends itself well to photography and my husband took several shots here. As its right in the centre of Christchurch right alongside the new Terrace development its worth admiring for a muniute or two.
