  Chess players in front of Christchurch Cathedral
by AKtravelers

Cathedral Square is the center of activity in Christchurch and a great place to start a short walking tour of the city. There are people playing chess with human size chess pieces, buskers and others just hanging around. We wandered into the Cathedral, but there was a wedding going on and the interior is not nearly as interesting as the exterior anyway.
