  • Nestled north of Beacon Hill Park and about a block southeast of the Empress, this institution is easily missed. One of the original sites of Victoria, dating back to the mid-1800's. I had the opportu...  more »

  • Behind the BC Royal Museum, walking, there are 5 minutes to the Humboldt Street is this former girls school, which was led by nuns. Directly opposite is also the old hospital, that formerly belonged to the complex, back adjacent the railing directly on the Beacon Hill Park. The facility is well maintained, you can visit the outdoor area, some rooms on the ground floor and the chapel. A further related small Schoolhouse that originally stood here, became the BC Rocal museum transported and can be visited there. The staff are very friendly, informative material for the walk through buildings and church with good Erklräungen are available also in German. The admission is free. You can sit on a park bench or the lawn and opposite at Café Fantastico there is a cafe.

  • We had our wedding ceremony (but not reception) at St. Ann’s in early September 2017. This is an absolutely gorgeous spot for a wedding ceremony and we had several guests actually stop us and ask how we found such as great spot for our wedding. The rules are a bit strict (i.e. no blowing bubbles, we need a specific type of insurance, we must clean up after the ceremony, etc.) but that makes perfect sense once you see the beautiful historic building. Everyone in the office there is amazing to deal with and they even have a planner who helps with the day-of preparation and helps direct everyone during the wedding ceremony. We would highly recommend this site for a wedding ceremony or even just a visit!!
  • Beautiful peaceful green space. The chapel is lovely. A real attribute to the city of Victoria.
  • Went to a wedding here, held in the gardens. Stunning venue easily accessible and in the heart of victoria. Historic venue, classic surroundings.
  • Just shot a wedding there. The chapel is absolutely beautiful.
  • An intimate performance space. This small auditorium lends itself well to acoustic music performances and other unamplified events. The performers are very close to the audience, leading to very engaging shows.
