Step back into history and experience a world of Victorian and Edwardian splendour offering you a glimpse of days gone by.

Riccarton House is a grand Victorian/Edwardian homestead built in three stages – 1856, 1874 and 1900 – for Canterbury’s pioneering Deans family. The house is fully restored and is decorated and furnished in appropriate period style.

Surrounded by lawns, mature trees, gardens and native bush, and bordered by the River Avon, the House enjoys the elegant setting of a bygone era.
