TripAdvisor review: New Regent Street, Christchurch NZ

New Regent Street is funky and a great taste of the local community.  Quaint terraces line the street which is mainly used for tram thoroughfare and pedestrian access. The terraces are pastels and are a mirror image on either side of the street. 

There are enough cafes to satisfy your brunch needs, some souvenir shops and hobby shops. 
What’s most exciting to me are the hidden touches of humanity and resilience in the aftermath of the Christchurch quakes. This strip is a testament to their rebuilding effort. The street art here is quirky, stimulating and surprising. 

I really recommend a stroll down here for lunch.
