Enclave of interesting activities
This complex of 23 heritage buildings contains shops, galleries, restaurants, art spaces and has become a hub for entrepreneurship in Christchurch.
The Gothic Revival buildings, constructed from the late 1870s, were once Canterbury College (now the University of Canterbury), Christchurch Boys' High School and Christchurch Girls' High School, but these have all moved on to new locations.
Various cultural events are held here and the maze of buildings is a joy to explore. There was extensive damage in the earthquakes and reconstruction continues.
