  • I have been here at different seasons and although nice at any time of year, it is certain the best in the peak of the summer.  more »
  • Small private garden with a great vibe. Stay for soup and a scone in the house which is mid-century modern  more »
  • Small gem worth spending time in at almost any season. We have been there in spring, summer and autumn and found something new each time we visited. Bring your camera!  more »

  • Lovely place to visit. A quaint Japanese garden with an English flair. The tea house offers "elevensies" and a high tea service. Value and location are excellent in a city that prides itself on it's English heritage and tea service.
  • Really cute little place, I think i will go again! My friend and I had elevenses and it was delicious! Had a nice time walking through gardens after.
  • Took family from out of town for tea and have to say we were a bit disappointed. $22 for the elevensies which consisted of a little scone, 2 little sandwiches, a tiny quiche, and 3 sweets. And we had to pay extra for just a wee bit of jam. Very nice park like surroundings right in the middle of town.
  • This is one of those little hidden gems. Lovely gardens and a tea house. The gardens are by donation and the high tea is much more affordable than most. Worth a visit.
  • Very nice place to find inner piece with a wonderful cup of tea. My gilfriend and I had a wonderful time.

Where to stay in Victoria

The curling waterfront Wharf Street, which becomes Store Street, offers the best selection of lodgings in the city center, although you can expect to pay extra for the trademark views. Many travelers opt to stay in the neighborhood of James Bay, where Belleville Street and surrounds provide comfortable and even luxurious options. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, look south to the expansive Beacon Hill Park.
