Old St Paul's

Breathtakingly Beautiful – Wellington's iconic Old St Paul’s is one of New Zealand’s greatest heritage places and one of the best examples of timber Gothic Revival architecture in the world. A ‘must-see’ experience on your visit to Wellington.


Old St Paul's is currently closed for strengthening work. It will reopen in July 2020.

Old St Paul’s is a place of living history, a place that tells the stories – not only of the church but the people of Wellington and the historic suburb of Thorndon. Constructed entirely from native timbers, the glowing interior is enhanced by stunning stained glass.

Our lovely gift shop features exquisite gifts and New Zealand keepsakes. Specialising in locally made goods, there is something to suit every taste.

Old St Paul's is just a few minutes stroll from the city centre and its amenities.
