Things to Do in Victoria

Butchart Gardens
Experience the dazzling colours of nature in this idyllic corner of Vancouver Island. Over a century ago, Jennie Butchart began building what is now one of the world's premier floral show gardens. Divided into six areas, the lovingly curated Butchart Gardens features an extensive collection of rose varieties, a peaceful Japanese area and an abundance of exotic plants.
Hatley Park National Historic Site
This grand Edwardian estate features 565 oceanfront acres with an amazing view of the majestic Olympic Mountains. It is home to both Royal Roads University and Hatley Castle, which was built in the early 1900s. In addition to the castle museum, Hatley Park has three well-kept gardens and numerous forest trails to explore.
Beacon Hill Park
Located along the shore of the Juan de Fuca Strait, this large public park offers a range of activities and amenities. Head to the coast for breathtaking views, explore the native flora on one of the many woodland trails or take a horse-drawn trip through the park's expansive grounds.

Clean and pretty city with lots to do and good restaurants. I hadn’t been to burchart Gardens in 25 years and it was more beautiful than I had remembered. Butterfly Gardens were like stepping into a rainforest. Parliament building downtown was beautiful. Canadians were friendly everywhere.

Recommended in Victoria

Just get a map and head in a different direction each day - who knows what's around the next corner. Be open and accepting to all things - the sights, the sounds, the smells.
