Victoria is one of the oldest cities on the west coast. In a key location for both the Hudson’s Bay Company and the Royal Navy, Victoria was a thriving city in the 1800s when Vancouver and Seattle were mere towns. It is renowned for its glorious old Victorian-era buildings and magnificent gardens.
The Victoria cityscape presents a wide range of architectural styles. And, of course, every building has a story! Collectively, they tell the story of this beautiful city.
Downtown Victoria is compact, flat, historic, and scenic, making a walking tour as absolutely the best way to experience the city. Check the Walking Tours page to see the choices we offer at Come See Victoria.
