Step back into Victorian New Zealand at the 1888 birthplace of Katherine Mansfield Beauchamp, New Zealand's most famous author and one of the world's best-known short story writers.
Nestled on historic Tinakori Road, the exquisitely restored house and the heritage garden provide an essential background to Mansfield's writing and give a unique opportunity to experience New Zealand society of the time. Guided tours can be pre-booked for groups of more than five people.
Number one in the Thorndon Heritage Trail. Category one of the NZ Historic Places Trust register.
