Antrim House is closed to the public during Level 2 and above to help protect the health of all visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19. For the latest information on COVID-19 in Aotearoa New Zealand visit the official government website.
When boot baron Robert Hannah built Antrim House in 1905 it was the ultimate statement home, a sumptuous Italianate affair on one of urban Wellington’s most notable residential streets. Today, the house fits snuggly between high-rise apartments and office blocks, a stone’s throw from Wellington’s busiest streets. Surrounded by lawns and mature trees – a favourite lunch-time spot– it’s a green oasis among the concrete and clatter of the CBD.
