Trip Planner: Canada / British Columbia / Vancouver Island / Victoria Capital Regional District / Colwood / Hatley Castle
Head to the Scottish Baronial-style masterpiece, Hatley Castle, whose original owner spared no expense in building exactly what he wanted. Originally the residence of Leuitenant Governor James Dunsmuir, the commanding 1906 castle measures 60 m (200 ft) long, 26 m (86 ft) wide, and 24 m (82 ft) tall. Inside, find 40 rooms panelled with oak and rosewood, teak floors, and lighting made specifically to the governor's taste. The building also served as a naval training facility, and was intended to house the British royal family during the outbreak of World War II; however, the family decided against moving here.

We encountered rain enroute and hail but then the sky opened up and the sun shone for all of our visit that more »
하하 정말 멋진 캐슬이었는데, 공작도 정말 많았지만 암컷만 보여서 수컷공작을 찾아 헤맨기억이 있습니다. 근데, 똥이 정말 많아요 처음엔 못알아채실수 있으니 유의하세요 ㅎ 제가 간날은 캐슬 출입이 안되는 날이어서 조금 아쉬웠고, X-man을 좋아하는 분은 그래도 꼭 가보시길 ^^ more »Haha really nice Castle, Duke really, but only females find a male Peacock as Peregrine memory. But a lot of this shit, so at first I didn't notice, please note that z mistakes I shouldn't access to the castle the day between the day like a little Ah be easy, X-man for those of you who are still just go ^^
I have been both a student and faculty here. It's lovely to walk through the Japanese and Italian gardens any time of year. Charlie's Trail area must for a nice family walk. Stop in at the Habitat caf... more »
Xavier's School for Gifted Children. Enough said! Only walked around the grounds, but it has an amazing view of the ocean and the different gardens (Italian and Japanese that I saw) were well done and very peaceful. Hatley Castle itself is stunning. Can't wait for a tour of the inside!
The castle was beautiful. When we visited, it was closed for a private function, so we were not able to see the interior. Our biggest motivation for visiting was the fact that the castle has appeared in several movies and TV shows. I was hoping to find some X-Men related items in the gift shop. Unfortunately, everything available in the gift shop is related to the Royal Roads University. Overall, it was a fun place to visit.
I had a wedding event there. It was super pretty during September weather and it's cool that it's a movie set!
Great castle! Stunning with great views and history! I would definitely recommend visiting!
A beautiful place to go for a walk. The gardens were looking far more unkept than usual
