The Antigua Boat Sheds have been a part of Christchurch’s history for over 130 years, and are classified as a Category 1 Historic Building. Conveniently located on the banks of the Avon River in the heart of the city and within 5 minutes’ walk of the Botanic Gardens, they are home to a traditional and iconic Christchurch pastime that retains all the trappings of Edwardian England, as well as to an excellent café and catering service. Watch our short movie below to get a feel for the Antigua Boat Sheds experience.


At the Boat Shed Café, you can enjoy great food in a serene and relaxing setting. The café’s location places customers right on the banks of the Avon as it meanders through central Christchurcank, or just drop in and unwind over a drink – see the menu information for further details.
