“bit of an old town”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

not as neat as other old towns in york in england or in edinburgh but it will do for one closer by vancouver. since vancouver does not have an old town to speak of it is nice that vicotria appreciates old things.

“look up”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

interesting old buildings and architecture. little shops where you wont find the same in malls. can be hard to park. be leisurely, and go into small shops you don't think you are interested in and maybe you'll be surprised! have a bubbletea in chinatown.

“Architecture”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Victoria has managed to maintain much of the old buildings. If things need upgrading it appears that the charm is being included. Thank goodness.
