Your Day Tour
From Victoria’s Inner Harbour, travel to the Butchart Gardens, named a National Historic Site of Canada in 2004, the 100th birthday of the gardens.
This privately owned 55-acre display garden is located just 35 minutes north of downtown. Once at the gardens stroll through the floral splendour which greets you at every turn. Highlights of the Summer season include the Rose Garden with over 250 varieties of roses, eco-friendly boat tours, an extensive perennial border, Night Illuminations, evening entertainment every night in July and August and a dazzling Fireworks show with both aerial and ground displays choreographed to show tunes (Saturdays in July and August).
The visit won’t be complete without a stop in the Seed & Gift Store filled with unique gifts and souvenirs, or a snack or meal in one of the on-site restaurants. The Rose Carousel with 30 hand-carved animals will be sure to delight children (and adults) of all ages.
Return to downtown Victoria on a shuttle convenient for you.
