All great cities have a great downtown, and Victoria is no exception.
Downtown Victoria hosts not only the world-renowned Inner Harbour, The Fairmont Empress hotel and Legislature Buildings, but also Canada's oldest Chinatown, and a wonderfully charming Old Town district.
Our downtown is without a doubt one of the reasons why Victoria is consistently rated as a premier travel destination across the country, and around the globe. It is picturesque, featuring waterfront paths, charming shops and restaurants, stunning heritage buildings and picture-perfect locations.
Downtown Victoria serves as the employment and entertainment hub for the 360,000 residents of Greater Victoria. It is also home to a growing number of residents, and a community in and of itself.
