Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / South Island / Canterbury Region / Christchurch / Christchurch Cathedral
Originally built between 1864 and 1904, Christchurch Cathedral once stood as the beautiful Gothic Revival seat for the Bishop of Christchurch. Since its construction, however, it has sustained gradual damage from earthquakes--most notably in February 2011. The disaster destroyed the spire and tower, and further damage continued in later earthquakes. Its former community now worships at a new home, and visitors can only view the outside of the cathedral ruins.

This is worthwhile seeing, even though one can’t get inside it’s worth while seeing. This building must have been lovely building before the earthquake. It’s a must see more »
Very nice Venue for holding special functions, such as conference dinners, awards functions and weddings. Tourist attraction. Worth visiting.
The Christchurch Transitional Cathedral is an amazing expression of faith and community after the most terrible of disasters for a congregation. It's incredible that it is built out of cardboard and other temporary materials but is still so peaceful and understated. Of particular interest are the plywood pews and the wonderful 'stained glass'.
