On the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island is Christchurch, a city renowned for its English ancestry. The Avon River flows through the heart of the city as flat-bottomed punts float by. Its banks are lined with bike lanes, Hagley Park’s lush landscape, and Christchurch Botanic Gardens. The historic centre’s stone-built structures were severely damaged by earthquakes in 2010 and 2011. The official oldest city in New Zealand is Christchurch, which was granted city status by royal charter on July 31, 1856. The city of Canterbury Plains was given the name Christ Church, Oxford, by the Canterbury Association, which also populated the area. In the 19th century, there were few obstacles to the urban area’s rapid growth and the new community was constructed in a grid plan with Cathedral Square at its centre.
