Join us on a holiday to Victoria

Victoria, Vancouver Island, is a city brimming with history.

 Having developed following the construction of Fort Victoria, a fur trading post built by British settlers in 1843, the city has a decidedly English edge, with tearooms, double-decker buses and traditional pubs providing a sense of familiarity. However, as the capital of British Columbia, there is plenty of local culture here, too. In contrast to the skyscrapers and bustle of Vancouver, the city of Victoria has a relaxed, slow-paced atmosphere, as well as one of the mildest climates in Western Canada.

Thanks to its compact centre, Victoria is a very walkable city. Government Street offers a range of shops, eateries and museums, as well as one of the oldest Chinatowns in North America, and provides access to popular attractions such as the quirky Victoria Bug Zoo. A little further afield, Butchart Gardens delight green-fingered visitors with a range of meticulous floral displays, and there are plenty of opportunities for whale-watching trips and outdoor activities. An excursion to the nearby Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, also on Vancouver Island, is beloved by walkers, while low-key holiday destinations in Greater Victoria, including Sooke and Westshore, provide unspoilt nature and historical sites.
