Good to see (particularly at night) if you're passing by - but not worth making a journey to search it out.

I spotted this tower on the way to the famous mural. I liked the design. If you have a plan to go to Hagley park then maybe quick stop would be a good idea.

The Victoria Street Clock Tower is a great relic of a bygone age standing proudly on its own in a sort of square precinct. It is well worth the effort of finding if you are nearby.

not a special trip but while walking around or on a tour take a look, or if on a walking tour stop to look, but not worth a special trip just to see the clock.

This is a British style clock tower, quite close to the casino but not easy to access if you're staying at city center. Not worth to walk there.

This tower was built for Queen Victoria's "Diamond Jubilee" and has been moved multiple times in Christchurch's history. It is quite interesting and has wonderful craftsmanship.

This glorious piece of architecture is obviously a much loved landmark. It has been lovingly restored after the earthquake and stands proud on its corner for all to enjoy. Well worth the effort to visit. I’m sure greatly valued as part of the cities heritage...More
