WELLINGTON CAPITAL ARTS TOUR HALF DAY
Experience Wellington’s vibrant, eclectic art and architecture on the Capital Arts Tour and spend half a day immersed in the creative worlds of Wellington, the absolute arts capital of New Zealand. See beautiful Victorian buildings sit alongside daring architectural designs, and museums and galleries displaying the best of the world’s historical collections and the latest works by contemporary New Zealand artists.
On the tour you see Wellington’s intriguing early suburbs, including a visit to Old St Paul’s cathedral, New Zealand’s finest wooden gothic revival church, and the Old Government Buildings built of wood, made to look like stone; the Supreme Court designed to work alongside the old high court; and of course no architectural tour would be complete without a look at the Beehive and Parliamentary Buildings.
From Architecture to Art we explore the art collections at some of New Zealand’s leading galleries and learn about the rich mix of Maori, Pacific, and European history. Finish the tour browsing for unique gifts at exclusive city stores that sell pieces from leading Pacific Rim artists.
The tour includes pick-up and drop-off from city centre accommodation, and all entry fees. Explore and enjoy the diversity of a city that provides an artistic experience around every corner.
