New eyes for Napier
Fantastic tour of Napier’s beautiful deco buildings with Rod Newson from the Art Deco Trust.

After many years between visits it was awesome to see and learn about the amazing history and architecture of the city.

Excellent guided walking tour
Mar 2020
Napier is a beautiful city with a historic art deco centre built in the 1930's after the major earthquake. The art deco buildings are well maintained and you can even go inside working buildings to see the interior decoration.
The walk is guided by volunteers from the Art Deco Trust with radio headsets giving you excellent information from well trained locals.

Great Tour - Very Informative
Mar 2020
You can book tickets for the walk from the Art Deco Centre and/or the local i-Site. The tour started at the Art Deco Centre with a short talk by our guide Jill, including what to do in the event of an earthquake! We then had a 5-minute lecture about how Napier was transformed after the 1931 earthquake. This was followed by a 20-minute film about the earthquake and the rebuilding of Napier. We were issued with headphones and receivers (so we could hear Jill) and it was then outside for our 1-hour walking tour. Jill told us all about the buildings we passed, the history as well as the different designs, symbols etc. Jill also had a collection of photos we were shown along the walk. The tour ends back at the Art Deco Centre. I suspect children would become a little bored but for adults, really interesting and informative. The Art Deco Centre also has a gift shop with lots of Are Deco souvenirs.

Educational and enjoyable
This is an excellent way to learn about why Napier is built in the Art Deco style and about the meaning of the different Art Deco motifs. The Art Deco centre itself is a treasure trove of gifts, clothes, hats, books, trivia and objects d’art all related to this style of architecture and decoration.
The walk self is conducted by a volunteer and is preceded by a short film about the 1931 earthquake that destroyed Napier. The film includes personal memories of survivors who were children at the time of the quake and these are very moving. The volunteer takes a small group of walkers around central Napier pointing out significant buildings, shops, restaurants and hotels and giving information and anecdotes about them.
I really enjoyed the walk and it helped to make sense of a town that is like no other in NZ.

Walk and learn
You are coming to the Art Deco capital of the world. How could you not want to explore and learn? We looked into self guided tours but this option seemed better. And was. The actual walk is relatively short even though our guide tacked on another 15 ( we chose the early morning walk and the longer walk is only another 30 mins) and his explanations added to the experience. A nice way to enjoy an overcast morning.

Short Art Deco Walk, Napier
Mar 2020
My wife & I went on this walking tour this morning. Unfortunately it was raining and as they provided umbrellas it was not too bad. This certainly is The Art Deco Capital of New Zealand. The history was explained first by watching a 30 minutes movie about the earthquake and its consequences. This was then followed by a walking tour where we had earphones to wear so that we could her the guide’s commentary. There certainly is a lot of history regarding the building frontage. Very interesting.

Guide very knowledgeable but walked too fast for most of the group. Very worthwhile tour. The movie before was excellent but spoilt by the organisers going in and out of the door disrupting the movie. Real pity.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one and a half hour walking tour with guide from arts trust. Not only did she cover the designs on outside of buildings but also took us inside a local bank and the telegraph office to see internal Art Deco features. Good communication equipment kept whole group advised.
