  Cathedral square
by manil51

Christchurch is centred around an impressive neo-gothic Anglican Cathedral located at the heart of the city in Cathedral square. One can tour the Cathedral and, after climbing the 133 steps to the spire's bellfry, 33 metres above the city, one gains a glorious view over the city and beyond. More importantly, perhaps, the square provides a central hub for tourism, shopping and public transport. The main tourism information centre is here, and most of Christchurch's attractions can be reached by foot from the square, or, failing that, by bicycle or bus.
