“Best In Summer”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

During the summer tourist season, Bastion Square hosts a small but good arts and crafts market. To really appreciate your surroundings, read up a little on Victoria's early history, particularly Fort Victoria and the old Courthouse (now the Maritime Museum). Lots of good places to eat and drink nearby.

“A zip through town”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Fairly typical of an old town square, rich with history and vendors in summer but really only worth a quick visit.

We didn't get to spend as much time in this area as we would have liked, but we liked what we saw.
