Taste Local Flavours
It’s a short walk to great restaurants and cafés. Get a cozy cup of coffee and a sweet treat at Bubie Rose’s Bakery, or sample the menu at Shine Cafe, one of Victoria’s famed brunch spots. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, Bear & Joey and Joie Grillade offer more upscale fare.
Arts & Culture
Tour the castle right in your backyard, or spend a few hours at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, which features works from Canada and Asia, as well as gardens and a Japanese Shinto shrine. Right around the corner is the Langham Court Theatre, where you can see a mix of classic and modern plays and musicals.
Health, Beauty & Wellness
Take Care of Yourself
Craigdarroch Care Home has an in-house hair salon, but if you’re looking for more pampering, there are spas, beauty salons and a barber nearby. Locals love Heaven Spa, Tangerine Hair Salon, Cook Street Barbershop and Rebellion Barbershop.
Explore Urban Activities
Visit the local YMCA or reach out to the team at RAD Recreation Adaptive Society to rent supportive equipment for your next outdoor adventure. A little further afield is the beloved Beacon Hill Park, where you can stroll on the manicured trails or visit the rose garden.
