Rydges Latimer Christchurch
Attractions & Activities in Christchurch
When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
When visiting Christchurch, make sure you take the time to head north to Waipara and check out the local wines Canterbury has to offer. One of my favourite day trips is to head into Pegasus Bay for a light lunch and wine flight with the family. Only 45 minutes from the hotel, you can either make a day of it by exploring the other wineries on offer in the region or just spend the time at Pegasus Bay before leisurely driving back into the city.

Rydges Latimer Christchurch is centrally located, putting guests near a host of Christchurch attractions.
Scenic Latimer Square is just steps away. Ferrymead Heritage Park is also nearby and is a great place to spend the afternoon exploring quaint shops then hopping on the trolley for a joyride around the area.
Guests can witness exotic New Zealand wildlife in the Willowbank Reserve and bring home pictures of the Kiwi, Kea, Tuatara, Kaka and the very rare Takahe. Or, spend a leisurely afternoon punting on the Avon and enjoying lush, beautiful woodlands from aboard a vessel.
Adventurous travellers can rent a speedboat with Jet Thrills and traverse waters at a breathtaking pace or head to the International Antarctic Centre and experience the feel of an entirely different continent. The Christchurch attraction offers the snow, ice and penguins of Antarctica without ever having to leave the area.
