Urban Rooms is Your Home Away from Home in Christchurch New Zealand

Christchurch - The Garden City


Christchurch is the largest city on New Zealand’s South Island but still manages to retain the intimate feel of a large town. Within the city you can explore the beauty of the Gothic cathedral and the cultural attractions of the main square, visit the acclaimed botanic gardens or immerse yourself in one of the fantastic museums and galleries the city offers. You can even hop on a tram for a ride around the centre. Christchurch has a great café culture and nightlife with live music and an assortment of bars and clubs, in addition to excellent cinemas and theatre.

The surrounding areas within Canterbury also offer great distractions to explore by car or bus, with Sumner and New Brighton beaches 20 minutes away, the beautiful French settlement of Akaroa within 45 minutes drive and the thermal resort of Hamner Springs an hour or so to the North.

The city is also the gateway to the South Island, so with a base in one of our houses, you can explore New Zealand’s amazing scenery in Otago, Southland, Marlborough or the West Coast for weekend or day trips without having to carry all of your worldly goods with you!
