Such a pity it has been left in such a terrible ruined state for so long. Hopefully it can soon be restored to its former glory.

During our visit in 2017, the cathdral was still a ruined shell inhabited by most of Christchurch's feral pigeon population. Now that the decision has been taken to rebuild it, hopefully this grand and elegant building will be restored to its rightful place as Christchurch's...More

6 & a half years after the latest earthquake & it would appear that the powers that be in Christchurch can't make up their minds as to what to do with this Cathedral. SHAME on them for allowing this structure to be left in disarray...More

Since the devastating earthquake of 2011 this cathedral has become a building site whilst they decide what to do with it . Three designs are still being discussed but it appears that the wonderful Victorian tower that fell in the quake may never rise again....More

What can one say ..... it's in major disrepair after the earthquake. A shame it is left in this decaying state as a sad reminder of events.

Only rated this poor, because it is so sad to see the building in such disrepair for so long, and the weeds everywhere. Despite very wet weather, my friend and I were determined to pay the cathedral a visit, to show it is not forgotten....More

Destroyed during the earthquake but you can still appreciate a part of its grandeur but cannot go inside.Adequate money is still not collected for restoration and have no idea when it will be done! It is in the main square and you cannot miss it!

You would have to park and walk as there is no through-traffic. Pedestrian area really.
