How to get here

Driving from north

Driving into town, stay on the motorway – don’t turn off at any exit. When you come out of the tunnel at the end of the motorway, you are heading straight down Vivian St – which becomes Pirie St. So just go straight ahead from the tunnel and up to last house on the left – 123 Pirie St.

From the ferry

Drive out and turn left and stay on that road for 2.5km. Turn right AFTER the New World Supermarket and then left between KFC and Toyota into Pirie St. Come up to last house on the left – 123/Booklovers.

From the airport

Come out of airport and follow signs towards town. You’ll come through the Mt Victoria tunnel. Then come three-quarters of the way round the Basin Reserve (a small cricket ground) and come into Cambridge Terrace. Turn right into Pirie St (between KFC and Toyota) at the first traffic lights that have a road to the right.

From Wellington railway station or downtown on a bus

Take a No 2 bus (or a 5 or 6) and get out at ‘the stop before the bus tunnel/the stop at the top of Pirie St’. You are then in front of 123 Pirie St, Booklovers B&B.

Parking

Park in the driveway or if there is someone there, park in the next bit up which is marked as parking for those using the city’s “green belt” walking tracks. This is fine from 3pm until 11am (as you are allowed 180 minutes and only 8am to 6pm is counted). I can give you a coupon for ‘coupon parking’ zone across the road. Do not park in the area marked ‘Residents parking’ as this can only be used by those living in the area who have bought a licence to park in the street.
