If you like Art Deco, this is great: a compact area of three streets gives you so many examples of the architectural features and lettering that characterise this 1930's style - very well maintained too.

Self-guided tour with a flyer from the i-Site ($7). We got background information about the earthquake in Napier.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
So cool!! 1930's classic cars and bikes!! Lots of fun, we all dressed the part too! Watched swing dancers and different old fashioned acts.
A paid for leaflet from I-Site showing a walking tour, plenty of information but directions were a bit hard to follow. Probably better with a quided tour. Napier Antiques on Tennyson Street is well worth a visit - almost a museum of all things art deco. Their prices seemed reasonable too. Also take a (steep) walk or drive to Bluff Hill which has fine view over harbour and good information plaques describing areas of activity in the harbour
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.

Great architecture and a nice walk too!
Free leaflet from teh Art deco Trust shop has plenty of information for a self-guided tour of the Art Deco architecture in Napier.
The walk is nothing if you compare it with the nature and the rest of New Zealand.
Evening event with music and dressed in clothes of 1930's, (during the yearly earthquake commemoration).
Self guided with a brochure from the i site. Cheap and funny.
We buy information for $5 from the Napier i SITE which gives all the information for a great Art Deco walk.
