Quaint stop, peaceful walk through the garden which can include a stop at the tea room. Interesting to learn the history of the Abkahazi's.

A beautiful, well maintained garden without crowds. If you don't mind a smaller garden without a hefty price tag (they suggest a C$10 donation), it's worth a visit.

The garden is small but lovely. If you are in the area I'd take a look. The high te is nice but not outstanding. Make a reservation.

Victoria BC is a garden city. Abkhazi Garden is a smaller and lesser known garden. Abkhazi is quite small, as compared to Hatley Castle gardens or Butchart Gardens. Yet it encompasses a surprisingly large variety of elevations and sight lines. It’s really quite a wonder...More
