Marlborough Vineyards

You can sample excellent wines and at many of the wineries indulge in first class cuisine, this is after all the reason for coming to Marlborough.

You can choose a tour see below, or explore yourself.

The best place to start is Wine Marlborough and follow their map, which you can download. On the back are listed the wineries, with address and contact details. If you plan on eating it is definitely recommended to make a reservation.

Picton Eating

Picton is very small and most places are just a walking distance,

The main streets are London Quay, Wellington Street and High Street, most of the Bars, Pubs, Cafes and Restaurants are located here.

Corner of London Quay & High Street is Cafe Cortado and on the opposite corner is theĀ  Seabreeze Cafe & Bar

Walk down London Quay and pass Le Cafe, a bar, cafe restaurant, sometimes with live music.

Next, on the corner with Wellington Street is Oxley’s Bar and Kitchen.

Along Wellington Street there is Seumus’s Irish Bar and then Escape to Picton.

A little way up High Street is Gusto’s, (excellent for breakfasts), and one block further up is Plaza India Bistro and Tandoor.

 

For the basics,

a good local baker is Picton Village Bakkerij

and for groceries, wine and beer, there is Fresh Choice supermarket at the top of High Street

For the best and freshest seafood, Ngamahau Fisheries in Kent Street, only open Thursdays and Fridays, they are busy fishing on other days.

London to Paris, Eurostar

“Eurostar is the high-speed passenger train from London to Paris & Brussels via the Channel Tunnel, taking as little as 2 hours 15 minutes for the 495 km (307 miles) to Paris or 1 hour 55 minutes for the 373 km (232 miles) to Brussels. Eurostar trains travel up to 186 mph, leaving London St Pancras station almost every hour for the Gare du Nord in central Paris and for Brussels Midi (also known as Brussel Zuid) every 2-3 hours. Eurostar trains are run by Eurostar International Limited, a company owned 55% by SNCF French Railways, 5% by SNCB Belgian Railways & 40% by London & Continental Railways, a company owned by the UK government. Eurostar carries passengers, not cars, so don’t confuse Eurostar with Eurotunnel, the company which owns the Channel Tunnel whose car-carrying trains shuttle road vehicles across the Channel.” quote www.seat61.com
