Greater Victoria BC Attractions - The Best of the City 

Our listing of Greater Victoria BC Attractions includes all the great things to see and do in the region. 

In addition to the national historic sites that Victoria is known for, we have many other beautiful landmarks in Victoria that are well worth the visit. 

Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse

Fort Rodd Hill is a former artillery fort located in Colwood BC. It was designated a National Historic Site in 1958 and sits adjacent to the first lighthouse on the west coast of Canada - Fisgard Lighthouse. 

Butchart Gardens

The most famous of our Victoria BC attractions has got to be Butchart Gardens. It was designated a national historic site in 2004 and receives over a million visitors every year. Visit in the summer and enjoy fireworks on Saturday nights or during the Christmas season for the Festival of Lights. 

Dallas Road, Clover Point and Ogden Point Breakwater

A favourite spot for tourists, locals and their furry friends is the Ogden Point, Clover Point and Dallas Rd area of Victoria BC. Enjoy an ocean-side walk along the Dallas Road Waterfront Pathway from Fisherman's Wharf to the Ross Bay Cemetery. 

Craigdarroch Castle

Constructed in the late 1800’s, Craigdarroch Castle was designated a National Historic Site in 1992. It contains furnishings from the 1890s and its stained-glass windows have been catalogued at the Institute for Stained Glass in Canada.

Esquimalt Lagoon

Esquimalt Lagoon is the perfect spot for a beautiful walk along the ocean, a picnic lunch, some off-leash fun for your fur friend or a day at the beach. And then there's the art. Read more.

Hatley Castle and Royal Roads University

The site of the castle is formally known as Hatley Park National Historic Site. It is a 40-room mansion that was constructed in 1906. The castle itself is only open to visitors who are on a 1-hour guided walking tour. Visitors without a booked tour can explore the property that includes Japanese, Italian and Rose formal gardens, 15 km of walking and hiking trails and more. 

Mount Douglas Park

One of my favourite places in Victoria is the summit of Mount Douglas Park in the District of Saanich. Take an easy stroll along the beach or hike up one of the parks trails to the top of mountain to enjoy the panoramic 360-degree view. 

Beacon Hill Park

Beacon Hill Park is a 200+ acre park located just outside of the downtown area. It is a magnificent example of woodlands, shoreline trails, landscaped gardens and much, much more.
