    We went to the store on the weekend and it's finally closed down. Time to stay good-bye for the last time. It's sad to see it go!  more »

    I was raised in Victoria BC. I am a tourist at heart. The Original Christmas Village on Government Street was a landmark. The owners took their business seriously. Unfortunately, due to location, the business attracted looky-loo's who just wanted to fondle all the merchandise. That is not how a business stays afloat.

    I love this store. The owner is a delight and brings me back to my days in Germany!

    Christmas Village is again open for business. What a delightful place this is; there is so very much to look at. Many of the items also have sale price tags attached. My wife and I always enjoy this shop, as it's the only one of it's kind we have found. I highly recommend a visit; this is a "must see" shop!

    This store is the worst!! I was so excited to be walking down the street & see a Christmas store! As you walk in you are bombarded by like 50 signs telling you what NOT to do....it was the weirdest thing. And don't even think about taking a picture or you will be kicked out by a crazy old man! no joke! I was tempted to break something just to spite him! I would never make a purchase at this store no matter how cool it was! I really don't even understand how this place is even in business!

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.
