Named after a former prime minister of New Zealand Richard Seddon, Seddon is well known for its tranquil rural setting, with long rows of vineyards and is worth visiting for its shops, cafes, pubs, walks and gardens in season. It’s an ideal place to stop and stay, and enjoy the rural atmosphere.

A two lane road bridge has now replaced the road bridge component. The railway line continues over the old historic bridge with a service in each direction of TranzCoastal passenger express stop in Seddon.
