Visited on Tuesday 22nd May. Make sure you take a ride around Christchurch CBD on one or more of the vintage trams, a great way to explore the area.

Mum and I decided to get together and do a few things off the bucket list, she hadn't ever been on the tram before, so we made a day of doing all the things she hadn't done. We really enjoyed the tram ride around town,...More
