“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

I visited during the Xmas parade and the atmosphere was phenomenal. Lots of live music and entertainment - all free of charge.

Just don't bother - walk through it as a shortcut but that is about all you can say!

“Sunny spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

Nice sunny spot of wellington, most of the times you get sheltered from the wind due to all the surrounding buildings. It also serves as a great cut through access from courtney through to the willis st quarter for shopping.

“Transformed & charming city centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

I walk through this area most days, and love it. There's a a terrific suspended sculpture (a metallic globe of ferns) and the disparate buildings have been linked through clever architecture to have a consolidated look - despite the range of building ages. It's a terrific asset to the city & good in all weathers.
