From sipping tea in a formal dining room, to taking a tour of the historic and notable landmarks on a horse-drawn carriage, Victoria, B.C., is the best place to experience a taste of British heritage on the Pacific coast.
Victoria is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. It’s like stepping into a wonderful blend of Victorian heritage and modern culture. From the landmark Empress Hotel and the Provincial Legislature, to the Royal Victoria Museum and the inner-harbour, there is so much to see and do.
Year round there are beautiful flowers that fill the gardens, amazing restaurants to tempt the palette, and a fantastic array of contemporary art on display. You could easily spend a weekend in Victoria and never run out of things to do.
