Christchurch Tramway

7 Tramway Lane, Christchurch
Christchurch, Canterbury
Last Century most Christchurch folk used to get around by tram until they were gradually overtaken by buses and cars.

A short inner city loop was reopened in 1995 as a tourist attraction, and was an immediate hit though tinged with amusement at the renaming of Worcester Street as a Boulevard to enhance it's attractiveness. Though the track was damaged in the earthquakes it has returned under new management and is going strong. The new base is on 'Tramway Lane' south of Cathedral Square.
The 2.5 km route links a number of Christchurch attractions.

A special attraction is the Christchurch Tramway Restaurant allowing you to combine dining with seeing the city's sights, best to book in advance for this.
