Explore Hagley Park

With Hagley Park as your back garden it provides the ideal spot for a post-lunch stroll. Wander among the lush greenery and smell the delicious flora and fauna that beautifies the landscape. The largest open space in Christchurch, it was previously used for horseracing before being reserved forever as a public park for recreational and enjoyment of the public.
 
During your visit, be sure to head to the central botanic gardens and admire the iconic Peacock Fountain. Make sure you check what festivals are on too, as during the summertime events such as the World Buskers Festival and the Teddy Bear’s Picnic are in full swing.  

Punting above your weight

The Avon River is a tranquil option for those wanting a romantic date complete with a traditional Edwardian punter to glide you across the waters. Travel from the Antigua Boat sheds, through Hagley Park and soak up the beauty of the area. Mona Vale is another point of departure where you can wander through the historic estate and classic English garden. Perfect for dating duos and frantic families after some chill out time. 

On your bike

Regardless of your bed and board, The George offers the complimentary use of mountain bikes so every guest can get around the area without aching feet. Christchurch is known as the ‘Garden City’ so on your ride there’s no doubt you’ll be inhaling the sweet floral perfume in the air as well as the views. Why not pack a picnic and make a day of it? Find a quiet patch of Hagley Park, indulge in a few sandwiches and a bottle of something bubbly… trust us, you won’t regret it.
