Event details

Albert Street and its surrounds housed Auckland’s traders and manufacturers.

Join our walking tour of the inner city. Learn how Saint Patrick’s Cathedral came to be and why the Shakespeare Hotel is one of a small group of surviving and protected ‘corner pubs’.

Discover the location of the oldest wall in the city centre, and why we built the men’s toilets to ‘satisfy standards of social and visual decency’.

Visit one of Auckland's oldest commercial building and the first well.
