Christchurch Shopping: 42 reviews and 40 photos


New Regent Street was the type of small street that was the forerunner to the big Mall type complexs seen elsewhere. A number of different shops lining either side of a small inner city street give you a wide variety of places to eat, drink and shop - or maybe just have a browse. The tram has one of its stops down here so you can drop off here for a coffee and relax with something to eat and watch the world go by bewfore jumping back on the tram.

What to buy: Shops sell items as varied as 2nd hand books, Coffee, Antique maps, Indian Food, Mexican food and Holidays.

Directions: New Regent street is located between Gloucester and Armagh streets in the block between Colombo and Manchester streets.
