Victoria Pier, Victoria

#6 of 18 in Historic Sites in Victoria
Explore the lively atmosphere at Victoria Pier. As the main port of call for the island, the marina bustles with activity. Take a relaxing stroll past the moored boathouses in the fishermen's wharf, and relax in the manicured green spaces. Browse local shops for gifts and souvenirs, then grab a bite of fresh seafood or a cold beer at a nearby restaurant or food cart. If you prefer elegance, treat yourself to some royal tea and scones at the historical hotel, just as the Queen of England once did. Make Victoria Pier part of your personalized Victoria itinerary using our Victoria travel itinerary planner.

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.
