“A must see when you come visit Victoria. Location is across from the Parliament Buildings at 675 Belleville St.”
“This has had a number of names over the years but it's a great place to take the kids or just go and see the local sea life. 3.6km or a 7 minute drive away. Next to the Victoria Distillery.”
“We can't say enough about this place. Fantastic, especially in winter, as it's a nice little getaway from the rain and grey skies. Tropical plants, flamingos, and hundreds of butterflies, what more could one ask for?”
“Built by coal baron Robert Dunsmuir during the reign of Queen Victoria and now a National Historic Site, Craigdarroch Castle has been meticulously restored, giving visitors a glimpse of privileged life in the 1890s.”
