Westfield Riccarton is a destination Mall - it pretty much has everything. Great food court area. Popular businesses covering a wide range to suit almost anyone. It gets busy and we have found going first thing it's quieter but by lunchtime especially in the weekend it's packed. Except... the parking is a nightmare. Another reason we go earlier to miss...

You can find most retail needs at the Westfield Riccarton Mall, including a large food court and cinema. Two floors of retail and reasonably good parking. In busy times plan your exit so you can turn left (only one flow of traffic) and you should be okay. Reasonable rest rooms, including parents' room. Most of usual retail chains, including a... More

Good place to while away some time and eat . Main Street nearby has some good eateries too. Nice range of shops. Not a high end designer mall. Suits ordinary folk.

You can easliy spend here a rainy morning or afternoon or even a whole day. If I hadn't stayed in Riccarton while visiting Christchurch, I wouldn't have come to this shopping mall, but it somehow replaces the non-existing city centre. I preferred the unique re Start mall, though.

Nice big 2 storey mall in the heart of Christchurch. This place has brand name shops to the regular $2 stores. One of the few places that was not affected during the quake. Plan your trip to the mall as during the school holiday weeks this place gets busy and more so during the afternoons. The food court has a... More
