    The Hamilton Night market is a new way to try different cuisines at an affordable rate. The food is good and there is also singers and crafts there. there's something for everyone at the night markets.

    The i-Site is in an old building along with an art gallery (Art Post). There is the usual wide array of brochures and souvenirs.

    The ArtsPost shop and gallery is co-located with the Hamilton i-Site. There is a great array of painting, sculpture, and ceramics, with crafts and souvenirs to buy.

    Great local microbrewery & taproom, very tasty English style ales in a no frills atmosphere. Don't come looking for a trendy bar setting, this is what it is, a brewery where you can see the brew tanks & sit in a sort of warehouse environment.

    Great initiative from a couple of local guys with a good sense of humour - just check out the website for a good overview.

    Perfect for that after work wind down.

    Lovely Mass,with an amazing pianist/organist leading the music. Great message from Father Richard, very friendly parishioners towards us obvious visitors. Amazed at the number of Asian families attending - wonder where all the NZ families are? We would love to return.

    We've been here several times now. Easily the best escape rooms in Hamilton in our humble opinion. Very creative and artistic puzzles, great themes, friendly service, decent pricing, and the board game library you can use after completing your room is the icing on the cake.

    A fabulous was to watch a movie. Seated in posh comfort. Staff are very friendly and things ran on time. The Theater was nice and cool, but not too cold. Great place to go to get out of the summer heat.
