Can’t believe each year we come back to Christchurch the Cathedral still looks so sad, I believe there’s still no real decision on its fate. Such a local landmark hopefully one day soon they’ll make a move on a new cathedral or repairing this one.

This the ruins of the earthquake that shocked the city. It is no longer in use. The architecture style is great. Nice and beautiful

The cathedral is an iconic building at the heart of the city. But absolutely nothing has been done to it since the 2011 earthquake. By world standards it is not architecturally significant, but given its focal position in the city it needs to be rebuilt without further delay. I strongly favour rebulilding the old cathedral rather than building a new on. Get on with it!!

Worth seeing for the earthquake’s destructive power, despite it being a sad reminder, in the centre of Christchurch. What a shame it’s still in ruins, surrounded be chain fence, over grown and lots of rubbish, and home to so many pigeons. Do hope it will not be another seven years before it can be fully restored to it former glory.

This is a very interesting spot. Right in the centre of the city. Yes a cathedral but partly ruined by the earthquake and so in a way uniquely interesting as is the whole area around it.
