Tranquility and beauty abound.

My wife and I spent some time quietly walking some of the many paths in the gardens. We were impressed, particularly, with the rose garden, still with many blooms in mid-April, and with the magnificence of many tall trees. Well worth a visit!

What asset these gardens are to Christchurch and so close to the Hospital. Love visiting in every season and Autumn is coming along nicely.

Had a wonderful time here with my partner wandering the gardens. We particularly liked the rose garden and the nearby garden houses. They have a lovely Cafe and shop here too.

Wow! These gardens are just magic. We visited during the second week of October and the tulips were in full bloom. Amazing old trees, magic conifers and beautifully presented gardens of flowers

The perfect place for a relaxed time. Central city location, and good to visit for a stroll all year round. Loads of little things to discover, little lakes, etc.

Wonderful, peaceful gardens
Feb 2021
I have been visiting the Christchurch Botanic Gardens all my life. They remain a go-to place, particularly if I need solace for my soul. You can choose to wander, to walk purposefully, to ring the peace bell, to walk in the shade, to sit in the sun, to drink coffee, to dine at the Curators COttage, to stroll by the riverbank, or walk amongst the huge trees. In all seasons, in all weathers, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens is always a great eperience.
