Chirstchurh Botanical Gardens is lovely and the grounds were really well maintained. The gardens are situated just beside Canterbury Museum and would recommend to anyone that would like to experience a very relaxing stroll after a visit to the museum. There were still pretty flowers around the gardens if you visit during autumn.

Christchurch is such a nice place and the botanical gardens epitomize what is so nice about the City. They are insanely well taken care of, beautiful, and peaceful. One can easily spend a fair amount of time just sitting on benches enjoying the scenery right in the middle of the City.

We really enjoyed our visit to the gardens and spent a few hours here. Especially loved the rose garden. Hundreds of roses, was a spectacular sight.

If there were a rating above "excellent" Christchurch Botanic Gardens would get it. We walked it with a volunteer guide and again by ourselves. We went early one day to spend time in the main Conservatory, which made me yearn for one of our own. The visitor center, cafe, and gift shop are in a beautiful space and worth a visit on their own. Walk by the river. Sit on a bench. Don't miss this absolutely superb garden! Bonus: entrance is free of charge.
