Discover the Art Deco Capital with Napier's official,
most experienced and longest running tour operator.
 

Take a tour of the city

Since the Art Deco Trust began showing the city’s Art Deco treasures to tourists in 1985, thousands of people each year have experienced Napier’s fascinating heritage and have been captivated by the dramatic story of this city’s rebirth in the vibrant 1930s.

In February 1931, Napier was levelled by earthquake and fire but was rebuilt in the depths of the Great Depression in just two years.  Nowhere else in the world can you see such a concentration of buildings in the styles of the 1930s: Art Deco, Spanish Mission and Stripped Classical.

Whatever you choose, you’ll hear the story of the earthquake that devastated Napier in 1931 and be introduced to the Art Deco style and hear stories of the characters involved in rebuilding this city.

With a range of tour options available all year round, you will find an Art Deco Trust tour to suit you on your next visit to Napier and Hawke’s Bay. 

Browse your tour options, and when you are ready to book just click on the booking button, alternatively contact us by phone 
0800 427 833 or email: walks@artdeconapier.com
PLEASE NOTE: As of 1st October 2018, walk and car tour prices will increase.


Daily 1931 Earthquake Movie:

The Art Deco Trust has daily showings of the movie “The Day That Changed the Bay” from 9:00am until 4:30pm. Learn about the devastating earthquake that destroyed the city. New Zealand's worst natural disaster is captured on a short film documenting the journey through the immediate aftermath of the earthquake and describes the vigour, passion and determination that resulted in the city being rebuilt in 22 months.

To view the movie, simply pop into the store at any time during the day and see the Walks and Tours desk.
