The Essential Wellington Walk departs from the i-SITE Visitor Centre at the Michael Fowler Centre Ticket Office 111 Wakefield St,  (opposite the end of Cuba St) at 10am daily.

Get to know Wellington's waterfront, downtown, courts and parliamentary areas in an easy walk of just over 2 hours duration.  Your guide will introduce you to the history, sights and culture of our vibrant city.
This walk terminates in the Old St Paul's Cathedral in Mulgrave St Thorndon, enabling you to explore this fine building at your leisure.

The Summer Evening Walk departs from outside the i-SITE Visitor Centre at 5.00pm on
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in summer (December through to the end of March).

This shorter walk of just over 1 1/2 hours duration covers some of the same sights as the morning walk before heading to the Courtenay Place entertainment area. 

Both of the walking routes are one-way, allowing you to continue exploring the city after you farewell your guide.
Note that there are no walks on Christmas Day or Good Friday.

Both of these walks can be booked in advance on line, at the i-SITE Visitor Centre  or directly with the guide.
