Start your journey through Victoria’s history with a stay in a vintage hotel.
Visit Craigdarroch Castle, where you can tour nearly 40 rooms decorated in Victorian and Edwardian styles. Stop by Victoria’s Chinatown, the oldest in Canada, and indulge in delicious food and excellent shopping. If you’re after a quieter, more elegant pursuit, take in afternoon tea at Point Ellice House, followed by a long stroll through the Maritime Museum of British Columbia. Don’t forget a trip to Old Town, one of the oldest and best-preserved districts in the city.

Your social media followers will want to know what you’ve been up to, so upload all your photographs to your social media accounts via the hotel’s Wi-Fi. Order room service and enjoy dinner in bed, or forego the room and spend an evening in the hotel lounge. Are you staying at one of the refurbished B&Bs in Victoria? Why not ask your host to tell you some stories about the building’s history?
