Kate Sheppard House, Te Whare Waiutuutu


83 Clyde Rd is a gracious four bedroom kauri villa, the epitome of a genteel Christchurch address – that is, aside from its incredibly colourful history of subversion and political agitation.

This was the family home of Kate Sheppard between 1888 and 1902, where the pioneering suffragist and her fellow campaigners organised their movement to secure the vote for women. The home is now open for the public to visit, enjoy and to seek inspiration from.


$15 for adults. Concessions may apply. Free for Heritage NZ members.
