Cashel Street has nothing much to offer visitors, a few shops, Container Mall is nearly empty of shops. Just before you get to Bridge of Remembrance you have SPARK BIKE were you can hire bikes.

Most of the shops (containers) are gone now as the ANZ and BNZ centre have opened with a variety of shops. There are still a few food places such as Dimitris. But asides from that, not many shops as you'd be better off going down...More

This street has an abundance of places to visit, not least of which is the Bridge of Remembrance, Container Mall and City Mall. There are still empty lots from the earthquake, which decimated the city.

We were impressed by the cafe in the mall. Service was prompt and friendly and tables cleaned quickly. Range of shops was interesting, not as many as we thought. Still worth a look and interesting to see how they can be set up.

I really enjoyed visiting the Restart Mall on Cashel Street. It is quirky and interesting and a visual treat. Well worth a visit.

The restart mall that popped up in shipping containers is mostly gone by now. There are a few shops left but not great variety. A pro for the are however is that food trucks seem to gather here.

Cashel Street is well worth a visit. It is a quirky mix of traditional shops alongside a labyrinth of shipping containers converted into retail outlets and coffee shops/cafes. For me it summed up the energy and positive 'can do' attitudes of the Christchurch people following...More

Worth a visit if only to check out Ballantynes a Christchurch Iconic Department Store. The Bridge of Remembrance is at the Avon River end of the Street. A lovely structure. Parking nearby as is the Bus Station and an easy walk to view the Cathedral...More
