The capital of British Columbia and occupier of a prime spot on the spectacularly scenic Vancouver Island, Victoria is a true Canadian gem. Known locally as the ‘City of Gardens’ thanks to its verdant parkland, discover the Canadian great outdoors with stroll through Butchart Gardens. Named after the English Queen, Victoria retains somewhat of an English ambience today. Enjoy an afternoon tea on the other side of the pond, take a ride on a double-decker bus or even see the sights by horse and carriage. There are plenty of English-style pubs here too!
