  • On a beautiful sunny day, we were lucky enough to come across the last market of the season. Lots of stalls with artisans showing off all manner of creations and happy to chat. Plenty of places to eat...  more »
  • Very busy Irish Pub on the corner and a great thoroughfare down to the waterfront where there are numerous restaurants and pubs. Well lit at night and quite a number of old buildings.  more »
  • Coastal Prezence have a stall here and produce the most gorgeous original dried seaweed pictures and prints. Charming family business.  more »

  • I mean. Free parking after 6 p.m. I have such a hard time finding parking DT and I can usually get in here. Pretty clean parkade! Awesome
  • Always park here when going downtown and I've never had problems. Staff are helpful.
  • Lots of space. Friendly staff. Good security.
  • This parkade is large and has many spots. It features on-site security and has an elevator to assist you to upper floors and multiple stairways. It's lit up to ensure safety. HOWEVER, you don't want to break down in here... it's not very friendly to negotiate in when things go south!
  • Car got broken into and security said what u expect we only get minimum wage

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.
