Unsafe Inner Harbour
May 2021
I visited the Inner Harbour last weekend with my family and we felt unsafe. There was a very large number of panhandlers, people doing drugs among the shrubs, and there was visible drug paraphernalia littered on the sidewalk and on benches. We were worried we'd get pricked by a used needle. A visibly intoxicated person approached us in an aggressive manner and we fled the area. Unsafe - avoid!

Heart of the city

This is the place to be! Great everything including shopping, dining, sights and ambiance. Walking in this area is very enjoyable, especially with so many sights to enjoy. A must see and do, as there isn't much else to do in town.

Spectacular day or night!
Feb. 2021
This scene never gets old. Whether it's Xmas time with the lights aplenty or during the summer, spring or fall it's always changing and always breathtaking. A must for any traveler and if you are unable to visit the UK, Victoria is just as good or not better, with the Inner Harbour being the caveat!

Absolutely Love It
Dec. 2020 • Couples
We moved here 2 summers ago and live in the outer harbour. We love to walk to the inner harbor to enjoy the sights, the food and the shopping. Cycling has become safe although it takes time to learn the pathways. I don't think we'll ever grow tired of it. Covid has definitely slowed things down and businesses are suffering so we try as much as we can to support it. Favourite stops are The Fisherman's Wharf, Beacon Hill Park and Dallas Road.

So much to do and see in the inner harbour
Dec. 2020
Take in the "Hands of Time". Great way to get 'steps' in while looking for the 12 pieces in the inner harbour. Makes for a more active engaging walk!

After Dinner Stroll
Sep. 2020
The inner harbour is a pedestrian walkway protected removed, and below the roadway, you could almost call it an ocean side promenade. For a portion of the year it is home to buskers and vendors that are given a stage or booth area authorized by the city of Victoria which keep it from becomes an open marketplace.
It is an excellent place to stroll off dinner. It also shows off the BC Parliament building that are eliminated every evening.

Love Victoria

Love everything about Victoria. It’s very nice and relaxing to walk along the inner harbour. Interesting to watch the boats come and go.
Spacious area. Pretty buildings to look at.

Love our Parliament Buildings

Main attraction, main view, absolutely beautiful. At night it is illuminated. They have added a large red Covid heart.

Great place for lake night walk
Sep. 2020
Victoria Harbor is a stunning place for visitors to walk around, I personally enjoy late evening walks as the harbor is lit by many night lights and historic landmarks.
