Lambton Quay has been the scene of protests, parades and
The road was initially known as Beach St and was the
original foreshore until the 1855 Wairarapa earthquake lifted the
land along the northwestern side of the harbour.
The street was renamed Lambton Quay after John Lambton, the
first Earl of Durham and the first chairman of directors of the New
Lambton Quay has been an important pedestrian and transport
thoroughfare since Wellington's early settlement.
Initially horse-drawn trams ran along Lambton Quay. Steam
engine trams were introduced in 1878 and electric trams in 1904.
Buses now run along the busy central city street.
Lambton Quay has hosted solemn and joyous occasions.
In 1925, a memorial procession along Lambton Quay for premier
William Massey brought the city to a standstill, as did the military
funeral procession accorded to the unknown warrior brought back to
New Zealand in 2004.
Wellingtonians came out in force in 1954 to get a glimpse of the
new monarch, Queen Elizabeth, as she made her way along Lambton
Wellingtonians have also marched along Lambton Quay fighting
for women's rights and homosexual law reform, and in protest of
war, nuclear power and asset sales.
Thousands have lined the route to cheer on our successes. Last
year's Rugby World Cup winners' parade attracted 100,000 people.
These days Lambton Quay is full of high-rise office blocks, though
several heritage buildings remain. These include the Old Bank
Arcade (1901), Whitcoulls (1907) and the MLC Building (1939).
Perhaps one of the city's greatest architectural feats is the Old
Government Buildings at the north end of Lambton Quay.
The historic category 1 structure was completed in 1876 and
housed the civil service.
It is the largest wooden building in the southern hemisphere and
is now home for Victoria University's law school.
