Escorted Rail Tours to Victoria

Enjoy quaint Victorian architecture

One of Canada's oldest cities, the city of Victoria was named, naturally, after Queen Victoria when it was settled by the British in 1841. Throughout the city's period of British rule, Victoria was an important centre for trade and commerce, and as such it became the capital and largest city of British Columbia.

In more recent years, Victoria has been recognised more widely as a beautiful city, now known for its temperate climate and relaxed atmosphere, and nicknamed 'the city of gardens'. With its quaint streets, fine Victorian architecture and genteel shops, the city is packed with attractions, making it a joy to discover.
