  • You cannot miss this square if you are wondering around downtown. It has a courtyard area where market people set up their wares. There's also several boutique style shops and eateries in the old, res...  more »
  • We passed the Market on the Hop on Hop off bus and it looked interesting. It was disappointed when we came back later. When we asked around, we were told that the Market has an open market on Sundays.  more »

  • We always enjoy trips through Market Square. Throughout the year many events are held in the square from markets to music festivals. Kids enjoy running around in the bottom of the square, parents like the snacks and coffees nearby. There are many options to keep everyone happy and busy. The new-ish pub, The Drake, is also fabulous and a new and unique spot in Victoria.
  • Lots of good restaurants. We love Green Cuisine for a wide selection of vegetarian foods. Amazing deserts and snacks. Enough choices for non-vegetarians.
  • If you are visiting Victoria this place is a must! Try to go during a sunny day and enjoy sunbathing on one of the benches while enjoying​ food from the several food places there are, including a vegetarian restaurant and a waffle house. It is also a nice place to go shopping for some souvenirs.
  • Hopefully they can make it a bustling hub someday... otherwise there are many unique and useful shops here.
  • Basically, this is trendy hippie central. That's not necessarily a bad thing but you should know what you're getting into. Some really fun events are held here in the summer. It was a bit cooler when it had the roof though. :(

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.
