Getting here

Located in the heart of Christchurch, the Arts Centre takes up an entire city block that is bounded by Worcester Boulevard, Montreal Street, Hereford Street and Rolleston Avenue. This means it is nestled among key city attractions including the Botanic Gardens, Canterbury Museum and Christchurch Art Gallery.

The Arts Centre has a limited number of 10 and 60 minute visitor carparks located at Market Square near the corner of Worcester Boulevard and Montreal Street.

Plenty of on-street metered parking is available near the Arts Centre.

There are also a number of Council and privately owned off-street carparks.

Public Transport

  • Tram – the tram has two stops right outside the Arts Centre and is a great sightseeing option through the recovering central city.

Cycling is a great option for getting to the Arts Centre, with plenty of family-friendly routes leading right to the site.

A cycle rack is located near the Canterbury Cheesemongers in Market Square, along with shared bikes that are available for hire. Cycle racks are also located outside of Canterbury Museum on Rolleston Avenue which is just across the road from the Great Hall and Rutherford’s Den.
