You should think of Hatley Castle, and Hatley Park National Historic Site, more as an elaborate mansion and less of a medieval castle. It is still very grand and very impressive! The entire Castle was built within 2 years and had an expensive electrical system as well! The castle also had 13 fireplaces! It has a large garden with 3 ponds to it's West side and a massive lawn to it's South. The castle was occupied and acted as an academy for the armed forces but currently serves as an administrative building for the neighboring college. These are just some of the facts and figured that you will learn if you get to chance and have the time to take part in their paid tour! It's definitely worthwhile. This site also has a huge grass lawn along with a multiple gardens that, altogether, contain 3 ponds. Ample paid parking just south of the castle. This is also a great place for weddings and formal ceremonies.
Great little hidden jem in James Bay across from Thrifty's. Food was hot & plentiful. Not fancy but well loved!! The waitress was friendly & kept the coffee flowing. Would recommend a try in the local neighbour!!!

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.

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.
