  The Art Gallery on Oxford Street.
by Kakapo2

This is a nice little gallery on Oxford Street, dwarfed by a hige historic stone building right beside.

Paintings, sculptures, jewellery, prints, drawings, watercolours, photographs and ceramic worksfeature in the gallery, often with Lyttelton scenes. Sometimes they have special exhibitions like the annual summer exhibition from mid February to mid March.

Open Wed- Sun from 10.30am until 5.30pm.

Update 8 August 2008

I have just read that the Lyttelton Visitor Centre will reopen soon at 20 Oxford Street - which is where the Art Gallery is. The Visitor Centre had been there before but due to insufficient funding it was closed. In the past two years it had been operated by the owners of Anchor Fine Arts in their shop in London Street. The Art Gallery will probably remain on site as they write that the works of local arts and crafts people should feature there on a monthly rotation.

Update 18 May 2009
Yes, the Visitor Centre is at 20 Oxford Street in the meantime. Still I recommend to make bookings for harbour cruises directly at the Blackcat Office on Norwich Quay - which is the street right along the waterfront. From the Visitor Centre you would walk straight down the hill, the next street is Norwich Quay. Cross the street and walk to the right. The office comes after about 50 metres.

Address: 20 Oxford Street
Directions: Next to the corner of Oxford and London Streets, second building downhill from the intersection with the road to Sumner.
