This must be one of Wellington's favourite spots. This immensely photogenic bridge, with its excellent art installations by Para Matchit and others, is an abiding symbol of the city's creative heart. Watch kids diving into the lagoon from the steps or just watch out over the harbour in the hope of spotting an orca. Just a short step to the... More

Located along the waterfront the bridge is right next to frank kitts park. I would say that it's definitely good to go check it out because I would call it a strange piece of architecture that gives character to the city of wellington.

This bridge is a wooden work of art with places to sit on it and enjoy the view. It is central to many places including a walk along the waterfront.

An interestingly built piece of art really. You can quickly walk over it and take it 'in' whilst on your way to the waterfront. Quirky and fun bridge. Very iconic for Wellington.

A brilliant job disguising a boring concrete footbridge over the road with clever use of wood, sculptures and paving, and by varying the width it allows all sorts of activities to occur around it. At the seaward end there are good views of the harbour basin - often Dragon Boat racing there on a weekend. And it's a nice walk... More

This bridge links the downtown area of Wellington to the waterfront. A very interesting spot with lots of history and some wonderful views and photo opportunities. The plaques and monuments helped explain the significance of the area

The City to Sea Bridge is like an outdoor exhibition for art lovers. Spend your lunch time there, sit sheltered from the wind, enjoy art and great views of city and sea. The bridge is beautifully created and so easy to visit!
