Known for its resident-led culture and open-minded approach to activities, St Albans is a contemporary community for over-65s who love to make the most of every day. The community has an on-site café (Café Caledonian) and a hair salon. It also has a fleet of electric vehicles for Living Well apartment residents to share, which means you could save on costs of car ownership.

As a central Christchurch retirement village, St Albans is handy to shops, parks, galleries, museums, gardens and historic places. The restaurants and cafés of Oxford Terrace are just minutes away, and the community runs regular van outings for shopping, special events and scenic drives.

St Albans has an inclusive and entrepreneurial culture where everyone’s encouraged to join in. Monthly meetings ensure residents can easily get involved with a range of projects, like making products for the community’s craft shop, running a stand at the local market day and re-inventing garden areas.
