“A Pleasant Part of Victoria's Old Town”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is where Victoria began in 1843 although the old fort is long gone. Several good cafes, the Victoria Maritime Museum, a decent pub and, on weekends in the summer, a craft market. Plus a great view of Victoria Harbour

“Okay!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Apparently they are supposed to have many vendors and live entertainers but every time I have gone they never have, have them? Cute brick building with varied vendors inside though.

“walking through”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Found this on our way to the Maritime Museum. We spent some time walking around and seeing what was there. Very nice not to have to dodge cars. Looking forward to going back when the weather is warmer to sit outside and enjoy lunch.

“A great walk and window shopping”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Our trip to Victoria wouldn't be complete without a stroll through Bastion Square. For us it was a great way to explore new options for food or shopping.
