“Be sure to take the free tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

The free tour is wonderful & the "characters" portrayed by local theater college students were terrific. Very informative & gave a new appreciation of the history of this area. Stop by the rose garden in back; roses are gigantic & most fragrant!

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Walked through today with my 7 & 10 year old sons who are still too young to enjoy it. They still had fun walking through and looking around. The architecture is amazing along with all the stained glass. I enjoyed it also. This was also free.

“Easier than doing this in the US”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were surprised by the limited obtrusive security, and were able to get in while politicians were going about their business. There is a self-guided tour available at no charge, and there is a lot of historical information to learn about in the building. The architecture is impressive with some very interesting artifacts.

“Gorgeous day and night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

The cruise ship didn't arrive to Victoria till 8:15 and shops closed at 9:00. Downtown was breathtaking. It was clean and gorgeous flowers all around. The parliament was lit up and it made me smile. I spoke with a resident and she said the city puts extra green and red light on during Christmas time. She said its something they all look forward to.

“Nice tour and nice building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

It was drizzling when we arrived in Victoria so we decided to take a tour of the Parliament Buildings. The lady was very knowledgable and plenty of time to take pictures. It is a lovely building inside, I especially liked all the stained glass.
Nice to be allowed in such buildings without all the massive security too, not like here :)

Oh and make sure you go back and have a look at night time, it is all lit up like Blackpool illuminations!
