shop & eat Featherston

Visiting the Wairarapa? Stop in Featherston first and stock up! Or, if you’re planning a trip to cycle the Rimutaka Rail Trail, it’s a popular choice to end at Cross Creek, then come up to town and make a day of it. Rehydrate at one of our cafes, or pick up picnic supplies from C’est Cheese and our wonderful Baker. If you’re on a bike you can catch the weekend return train to Wellington in the early evening, so you’ll have time to peruse the shops or visit a museum or gallery, then perhaps enjoy a well earned drink at Brac&Bow, or the newly renovated Royal Hotel (opening soon). Pick up a book to read on the train, from one of our secondhand book stores.
