Why are so many people moving from the UK to Christchurch?
Christchurch is a rapidly growing city with a strong economy and high standard of living. New Zealanders are incredibly friendly and welcoming of new arrivals, making it the perfect destination for migrants from the UK! The main reasons why people move to Christchurch from the UK include:
- The city has been redesigned for the future
Christchurch was significantly impacted by major earthquakes in 2010 and 2011. While these natural disasters were devastating to the city, they gave the government and business leaders the opportunity to reshape the city. As a result, development in the city has boomed, with many futuristic buildings being constructed.The modern buildings being constructed are designed for the 21st-Century and beyond! A new retail centre is being built in the city, along with some new sporting venues. There continues to be strong demand for construction workers in Christchurch, and the city continues to rebuild. The rapid growth of the city makes it an exciting place to live.
- There is so much to do!
Christchurch is well-located for anyone interested in outdoor activities. It is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the rich farmlands of Canterbury plains and the stunning Banks Peninsula. If you are interested in skiing or snow boarding, there are nine world-class ski areas within a two-hour drive of the city. The natural environment surrounding the city is also perfect for mountain biking, hiking, river rafting, surfing, rock climbing and much more.A large part of the city’s redesign was to increase the number of public spaces for citizens. There are now more than 80 kms of walking tracks and 740 city parks within Christchurch — perfect for a relaxing afternoon out with the family. The cafe scene is incredible, there are many golf courses, and some great live music venues!
- A rich and diverse culture
New Zealanders are proud of both their Maori and European heritage. Indigenous art, language, and music is important in New Zealand — giving the country a strong connection to its past. Christchurch is packed with art galleries, museums, theatres and music venues, which celebrate the rich culture that the country has to offer.
- Christchurch has a strong economy
Traditionally, Christchurch has had one of the strongest economies in New Zealand. While the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 were a significant setback to that economy, the city has begun to prosper again. The unemployment rate has dropped substantially and a number of sectors are thriving including farming, information technology, manufacturing, and construction. It is an excellent location for starting a business or finding employment.
- A world-class education system
The schools in Christchurch are of exceptional quality and among the best in New Zealand. The city has a strong tertiary education system with two universities and two polytechnic institutes of technology. The primary and secondary schools are well-funded and deliver educational outcomes well above the OECD average.
Christchurch has a number of public and private schools to choose from. The city has particularly strong independent and church schools including St Thomas of Canterbury College, St Margaret’s College, Marian College, St Andrew’s College, and Rangi Ruru Girls’ School. Many of these independent schools are run in a similar way to English public schools.
Some of the best schools Christchurch include:
