The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria is home to historic buildings, great shopping and some of the best museums in Western Canada. Established in 1843 as a fort for the Hudson’s Bay Trading Company, you can still see many British legacies such as double decker buses, horse drawn carriages, and original buildings. Though rich in history, Victoria is now a busy city with entertainment and a wide range of street festivals & activities.
