- just like walking the sea wall - from the town side across the johnson street bridge towards Esquimalt.Written October 17, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Beacon Hill Park is a roughly 200 acre urban park in downtown Victoria, BC. It has many diverse ecological areas with a myriad of gardens, plants, animals, and trees as well as pathways, a kid's zoo, sports areas, meadows, and even totem poles. We spent about four hours here and didn't see it all. Even a short visit would be relaxing and informative.
We hiked from the top of the park amongst the geographical diversity to the Terry Fox Statue and then along the ocean shore walkways. Everything was an adventure.
Don't miss the peacocks or the quiet solitude of the Moss Lady Sculpture.
Beacon Hill Park is a jewel and Victoria residents must ensure it is never subject to development!Written November 4, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- The BC Legislative Building is a terrific lesson in both architecture and history. The building and grounds sparkle during the day and light up at night. This isn’t a stuffy old edifice; instead, it brings the history of BC to life from portraits of BC legislators to murals on the ceiling.
We spent about 1.5 hours looking around and then had a delightful lunch in the old school dining room. Don’t miss the Legislature’s dining room, likely the best in the city, even if you have to cut back on seeing the Legislature itself.
The grounds are thoughtfully landscaped and the statues from a bygone era are exceptional. There are free tours of the building however, a self-guided tour is very informative.
We visited just after Queen Elizabeth died and the Legislature had a tasteful memorial with the opportunity to prepare a letter of remembrance. The many photos of Her Majesty taken during her visits to BC and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Window stained glass window were poignant given her passing.Written November 6, 2022
- A look into the past. Take an hour and explore this amazing castle. 5 sets of stairs, 5 floors to explore.Written November 23, 2022
- Beautiful drive. Some very beautiful homes, especially in the Uplands area. There are deer everywhere and not at all afraid of humans. All drivers are very polite and pedestrian street crossing is very safe! We saw three separate Pianos outside in various areas. There are all-painted differently from the others and in working order.Written August 4, 2022
- Really fresh sturgeon fish tacos and the helpful staff steered us on that direction. 7 minUte ticket times and some shelter d seating with heaters. One of the only places open during the off season and we were glad they were open after a long walk. Worth repeat visitsWritten November 14, 2022
- This place is worth a visit even if it's only to meet the gorgeous golden labrador who lives with the concierge in reception!Written September 25, 2022
- We walked round the coast to these breakwaters which are amazing. The views are beautiful as the sun goes down.we even saw a cruise ship arrive just before dark. It didn’t stay long as it had disappeared by 9 am the next day when we went whale watching!Written October 6, 2022
- Good wholesome food, great desserts, attentive staff and a fun place to see and experience. Reservations are required and easy to make with a phone call.Written September 25, 2022

- A small but beautiful garden with a handful of short paths and loops as well as peaceful places to sit and enjoy. Admission by donation makes this a really great affordable stop while in Victoria (bring cash if you wish to leave a donation).Written October 17, 2022
- Spent a little time browsing the fun little shops in Fan Tan Alley. Although it is interesting finding parking can be a bit of a chore and isn't cheap. We made the best of it and walked several other blocks as well to see everything that was nearby.Written September 27, 2022
- Really nice and peaceful walking areas and gardens are great as well as the historic sites about the Castle and use of the grounds, Nice to see all the Peacocks and just relax on the groundsWritten March 19, 2019
- Beautiful grounds and a lot of history going back to the late 1800’s. There is no admittance cost but they will accept donations. This is a must stop rain or shine for everyone. The museum and the historical house is located minutes from downtown Victoria and there is free parking on site.Written October 7, 2021
