Craigdarroch Castle is a definitively Victorian experience. It is a shining example of a “bonanza castle” — massive houses built for entrepreneurs who became wealthy during the industrial age. In this case, the industrialist was Robert Dunsmuir, a Scottish immigrant who made his fortune from Vancouver Island coal. This legendary Victorian mansion, built between 1887 and 1890 on a hill overlooking the City of Victoria, announced to the world that Robert Dunsmuir was the richest and most important man in Western Canada. He died in 1889, leaving his entire estate to his wife Joan, who lived in the Castle until her death in 1908. The immense fortune of the Dunsmuir family is reflected in the four floors of exquisite stained glass windows, intricate woodwork and fabulous Victorian-era furnishings.

A huge park with loads of different trails to hike of varying difficulty - Coastal, inland, viewpoints, mine shafts, and a small cabin to take shelter in along the coastal trail on a wet/windy day. If you've never been before, stick to the main trails as its pretty easy to get lost on all the side trails, and plan to return to the parking lot well before sunset.

Great experience the few times I've been. The inside is beautiful, lots of gorgeous woodwork and stained glass. There's a charming pub atmosphere with live music some nights. The couple times I've been we've ordered the delicious nachos - very worthwhile. Great location along major bus routes and a very short walk from the inner harbour or downtown.

Delicious tapas, increíble drinks and amazing service!! The savory, warm stuffed piquillo peppers with serrano ham, mushrooms and cream cheese — so good I ordered another instead of dessert. Comforting, creamy papas supremas (potato with serrano ham, soft boiled egg, tomato sauce, garlic aioli). Ask for extra bread to soak up every drop of the delectable sauces on the tender gambas al ajillo (shrimp in garlic, lemon sauce) and the albondigas de cordero (lamb meatballs in tomato sauce). Tuna conservas (worth every dime), marinated eggplant salad, and rainbow carrots — oh my. Crema Catalana cinnamon orange brulee with peaches. All these dishes also happen to be gluten free.

Ferris' Oyster Bar & Grill opened its doors on the 4th of February, 1991. Its original name was Ferris' Oyster and Burger Bar Restaurant. This name embodied the simplicity of their early menu: a focus on oysters and simple grill food. Although this proved to be popular, it was soon discovered that that was not enough. Ferris' menu has greatly expanded and consequently, a name change seemed appropriate. Today, Ferris' Grill (as the main floor is called), features a diverse array of fine foods, ranging from burgers, to pastas & fresh seafood, and of course, oysters!
Rustic pub feel. Liked the music playlist they had on! The burgers were delicious! They had lots of unique burgers with the option to customize an entire burger. Service was also great and quick which is always nice! The staff are very friendly.
Best place to have breakfast in the city. Their food is scrumptious and comes in large portion sizes. You're definitely getting your money's worth. Also, they're a family friendly restaurant, with an excellent menu for children.

Offer some incredible moss covered terrain in a set in a beautiful west coast rainforest. One should leave plenty of extra time to complete this long hike as several of the backcountry trails can be difficult to follow and somewhat confusing in some areas.
