Lyttelton

Lyttelton and the Port Hills are just a short distance from Christchurch City. Lyttelton was settled around the same time as Christchurch and many of the original buildings remain. The coastal road from Lyttelton is a scenic drive passing many picturesque bays on the way to the Banks Peninsula. A great way to experience the town and harbour is on a Christchurch Wildlife Cruise.
