Butchart Gardens 

 
Designated a National Historic Site of Canada, the gorgeous Butchart Gardens is an absolute must-visit destination in Victoria. Throughout the year you can view the sprawling, 55-acre site that features millions of bedding plants representing over 900 varieties. This season, witness delicate snowdrops and lush hellebore provide a quiet kind of beauty over the entire Winter Garden. Complimentary umbrellas are available on rainy days. For those who prefer not to venture outside, stroll on the flagstone paths in the Spring Prelude Indoor Garden while taking in the magnificent sights of enchanting daffodils and tulips standing alongside vivid tropical plants and orchids. To optimize your experience at the Butchart Gardens, book a boat tour, ice skate, ride the Rose Carousel or visit the Children's Pavillion.
