LOCATION.

Christchurch.

“Christchurch” The name “Christ Church” was decided prior to the ships’ arrival, at the Association’s first meeting, on 27 March 1848. The exact basis for the name is not known. It has been suggested that it is named for Christchurch, in Dorset, England; for Canterbury Cathedral; or in honour of Christ Church, Oxford.

Home to one of the most significant collections of heritage buildings in New Zealand, The Arts Centre is a must visit if you are a fan of beautiful architecture.
