City Center, Christchurch: 128 reviews and 163 photos


This tower was put up to commerate the Diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria - ie 60 years at the top - in 1898. The tower is made from volcanic stone and limestone and has wrought iron work and coloured glass. There is a drinking fountain in the middle and as a kid, I used to pester my parents to stop here for a drink after visiting my Nana in Papanui - oh the memories of youth....
