Your Wellington accommodation could be part of history
The city of Wellington is the capital of New Zealand, as well as being the second most populated settlement in the whole of New Zealand. The city’s Maori is Te Upoko o te Ika a Maui, meaning ‘the head of Maui’s fish’. This name derives from a great Maori legend of a navigator called Maui who‘fished’ up the North Island.
The English name Wellington is in recognition of Arthur Wellesley who was the first Duke of Wellington and was the victor at the Battle of Waterloo. The city is home to New Zealand’s houses of Parliament, the head offices of all Government Ministries and Departments. It is the main centre of politics for the whole country, which is quite fitting as the city is also the capital.
The city of Wellington is often known to New Zealanders as “Windy Wellington”. This is due to the oceanic climate of the city and the weather that blows through the Cook Strait. If you will be staying in Wellington accommodation, you should be ready to experience windy weather when you are staying here.
