Wellington named in Top 10 cities to visit in 2015
New Zealand’s capital city Wellington has capped off another stellar year of being the ‘world’s coolest little capital’ with a place in Rough Guides Top 10 Cities to Visit in 2015.
The renowned travel guidebook publishers and digital content creators believe there has never been a better time to visit Wellington, calling the city ‘The urban jewel in the country’s otherwise bucolic crown.’
“There’s a real buzz about the city’s café scene and smart new craft-beer bars are bubbling up across the city” the write up to the report goes on to say about Wellington’s sixth placing on the list.
Built on the edge of a wide harbour and steep surrounding hills, visitors don’t need to travel far from the centre of the city to experience the best of Wellington – with world-class museums and art galleries, nature and wildlife, scrumptious dining and award-winning coffee and cafes right on the doorstep.
Home to Sir Peter Jackson and the phenomenally successful Weta Workshop, Weta Digital and Post-Production facility Park Road Post, Wellington has been on the world stage a little more than usual with the recent release of the final instalment of The Hobbit
Trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
