This place allows visitors to enter the square garden inside, but it's enough to feel you are visiting England instead of New Zealand. The beautiful heavy Victorian style along with the green garden let you feel you are in the antique times.

This grand old building is the first in Ch-ch, set up by the founding fathers, - the Anglican church. It represents the Britannic side of NZ & Ch-ch history and is worth a look.

A visit to the college grounds feels like you have been transported to the mother country. Very nice buildings and good to see them repaired after the quake.

Very picturesque secondary private school on Rolleston, next to old Public Library and across the road from the original Canterbury University.

This is a very picturesque college setting. The boys with their unique uniforms and the statuesque old buildings transport one to another time and place. It is peaceful to stroll through the grounds.
