… and in more ways than anyone could have imagined.

Cathedral Square may have previously been battered, but its community spirit prevails.

Even if chess isn’t your thing, you won’t be short of things to do at the heart of the city.

Christchurch’s English heritage is always a standout attraction.

Historic wonders are well within reach.

In fact, many still have their place in modern society.

Day or night, New Regent Street’s Spanish Mission architecture always has a special spark to it.

Modern fixtures like the Cardboard Cathedral are a testament to the city’s resilient spirit.

Further afield, New Brighton Pier’s photogenic features never cease to amaze.

A walk or cycle around Port Hills will definitely reward you with remarkable vistas.

And an epic expedition around the wider Canterbury region is just a scenic drive away.
