New Regent Street in in Christchurch is well known for the numerous restaurants and cafes along it with street dining. The road is lined with colonial style buildings, giving quite a different feel to the rest of the city. The Christchurch tram runs down the middle of the road, New Regent Street on stop 10 on the circuit. One of the trams can be seen heading down New Regent Street towards Cathedral Station in this image. It is close to many of the hotels within Christchurch, and therefore very popular for evening dining.

New Regent Street opened by Mayor D G Sullivan in 1931 who referred to it as the 'most beautiful street in New Zealand'. It was named after Regent Street in London. Spanish Mission architectural style was used for the buildings that line the street, making it unique in New Zealand. New Regent Street was converted into a pedestrian shopping and dining mall in 1994.
