It's a short street, as we went there quite early in the morning, most of the shop are not open. There is a tram that is passing by.

5 mins from the town centre you will find this quaint street full of heritage buildings occupied by a good mix of cafes, bars and imaginative boutiques.

We were told the scaffolding was all down, but when we arrived, they had put it back up. I'm sure it's beautiful, but we just couldn't see it! We did stop in one of the buildings for a coffee, and it was nice.

The colourful buildings are lovely and the food and drink choices are all delicious. This is a street not to be missed.

A street full of places to eat, you are hard pushed to make a choice! The buildings reflect each other across the street and are painted reflecting colours.

Walking distance from the centre of Christchurch. The tram runs down the middle of the street which was great to see. Lovely old building which was nice to see which gives character to Christchurch.
