Old city renewed

A wander around the Christchurch Square must include a walk through New Regent Street, to the east of the cathedral and to it's rear. Some fine shops and eating places.

I'm not sure if this is what "old Christchurch" looked like but it's an awfully cute street. It's really a pedestrian mall with a lot of dining choices and some shopping too.

New Regent Street is a charming relic of old Christchurch, a miracle and a tribute to the building skills of those who created it in the 1930's. It's such a pretty street with its colorful Spanish frontages and lovely Moorish tiles which have doggedly stuck to the shopfronts despite thousands of earthquakes. The street is coming back to life, along... More

This is definitely one of the places to visit in Christchurch, with it's old-fashioned quaint buildings with very interesting shops, cafes with outdoor seating, restaurants and bars with a difference.
