This April only, we're offering a special guided tour package for heritage fans.

You'll begin at Old St Paul's, a stunning timber Gothic Revival cathedral dating to 1866. Learn about the history, architecture and people connected with this special building as you marvel at the glowing stained glass windows and finely constructed woodwork.

Then, stroll with your friendly guide to Old Government Buildings (an easy 5 minute walk away), to discover Wellington's original centre of government, another fascinating and beautiful piece of New Zealand's heritage - and the largest wooden building in the Southern Hemisphere!
