Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Visited the Harbourside Market in Wellington yesterday, and wish that I had a bigger appetite! Apart from the extensive selection of very fresh fruit, herbs & vegetables on offer, there was live music and a wide range of food trucks & stalls, spread out and around the waterfront.

    Nice vibe, nice people and great food.

    A very enthusiastic welcome from reception staff and a detailed explanation of what was on offer and the relevance. Interesting to see the Diane Arbus exhibition and ponder why she picked these particular 10 photos to represent her work.
    Gallery is quite small but accessible so can be explored quite quickly

    It was a miserable day (as it turns out, midway between a cyclone and an earthquake!) so we enjoyed walking along the front in Wellington and came across the Gallery by chance. Although initially sheltering from the rain, we enjoyed our walk around the exhibits

    I'm not a chocolate person per se and I took a group of 4 adults as an experience. Two older guys and two younger women and we had a great time. It was the perfect amount of explanation and achievable for the "non-cooks" to do. The host was clear and enjoyable. They deliver exactly what they promise. It was a great break from tours and museums in a fun, different neighborhood. I'd recommend it!

    A cool little old industrial building has been refurbished into a small and intimate portrait gallery. Its not the biggest gallery you've ever seen, but its worth a visit to see what they have on display. On grade access throughout, and worth a visit as it won't take up a lot of your day.

    The Old Bank Arcade is exactly that, a shopping arcade within the premises of a former bank. Evidence of the old banking chamber is there to behold - the classical columns, the high ornate ceilings, the stained timber, the tessellated tiles etc, all beautifully restored, and I thought this the most impressive aspect of the site. Nowadays the site is occupied by a line-up of very elegant and no doubt expensive boutique-style stores including several upmarket cafes. With not so much as a tile out of place, to me it was perhaps all a bit too perfect. For those who know the QVB in Sydney, the Old Bank restoration was apparently done by the same company

    What a beautiful gallery. The glass work was fantastic and if I could would have walked out being broke. The ladies working were really friendly and helpful too.

    I’ve been going to Zamm for several years now, and she never fails to provide me with the insights and direction I’m seeking. You just know she’s onto it and “gets it”. She’s kind, empathetic and constructive, and her advice also always comes from a place of personal and spiritual improvement and development, which is so important when facing life’s ongoing challenges. Highly recommended - she’s always on the nose and delivered!

    We had a very informative demonstration of the distillation of perfumes at Fragrifert Perfumery, showing how the fragrances were created from start to point of sale. We were able to browse and smell the wonderful aromas of the fragrances. Needless to say both my husband and myself were delighted with our purchases.

    Beautiful little shop. It has unique items ranging from about $10 into the thousands. The service is amazing and the stories behind art work are given freely with no push to sell anything. If you like quirky gifts, beautiful jewellery and gorgeous little artworks I recommend this place! Easy to find on the wharf too.

    It is a small market just opens on Saturday morning. you should go there early or most things would be sold out already. You can find some local food products such as honey, veggies, fruits and so on.
    As other market, bring your own bags or containers for the items.

    Reserve 15-20 minutes for the market would be pretty enough. Easy to walk from the Wellington train station or bus stop. you could visit the Beehive, parliament and church nearby together.

    Great indoor market with lots of stalls selling local products, arts, crafts, food, clothing... coffee! Free entry and some really great stuff for sale. Only open Sundays at the moment.
    Located in the beautiful Shelly Bay with stunning views of Wellington

    At the Southern end of Cuba Street, Wellington's most famous street, this art gallery specialises in New Zealand art. Most works are original oil paintings and water colours; there are also limited edition prints, drawings and also some inexpensive smaller prints and postcards.
    There are changing featured artist exhibitions, but always lots of different artists' works to view.
    Some artists are world famous and others are of the emerging artist category. A lot of the art is of Wellington but not strictly so. The gallery is tiny and the walls are fully utilised; this is not one of those two artworks per wall type galleries.

    Only a handful of shops so we went through in about 30 mins, depends what you are looking for but an overly good selection and some prices aren’t really discounted. Definitely don’t make a special trip to visit
