  • We bumped into the janitor who gave us a great history lesson. The workmanship in the buildings is beautiful.  more »
  • We phoned the Service visits and we have learned that there is a 9: 00 or another at 4: 00 that day. We had a tour for we two alone with the guide at 9. The guide spoke french with us and really knew the history of British Colombia and the building. He even taught us many details on the British parliamentary system that we already know. A beautiful building and a pleasant visit interesting and informative.

  • I'm not a huge political buff but I do love and appreciate historical buildings. Got to do a FREE 30 mins tour during BC Day and the inside (and outside) is so beautiful. The guide we had was awesome too! Lots of people taking photos of the front, but don't forget the back (library side) which I think was my favourite part of the external features... And there's less people around too!
  • I won't be exaggerating when I say that it's the most beautiful building in BC. It's massive and incredible to look at. The night view is stunning as well. Not much to do inside, but it's worth a quick look.
  • I highly recommend the free tour of the building. It is historical and fun! I've been to many tours and this one really stood out to me because of my guides' energy and an interesting twist during the tour.
  • Iconic Europeanish building in Western Canada...hardly find such looking buildings on the west cost. Really nice harbour view from here, most popular place to be during the summer with flowers blooming all around and touristy feel, quiet different vibe from Vancouver.
  • Really cool building. Great history. A wonderful place to learn about our lovely neighbors to the north.
