Foursquare Tips

  • if you're a local get a season pass, dropping in for a walk with your dog to listen to music in the summer is awesome... and try the hot chocolate!
  • If you love photography, the best time of day for a visit and best pictures is early!!! Soft light, and a nice dew on the leaves and petals. Beat the daytime rush too!
  • Amazing, amazing. Beautiful visual experience. Well worth it
  • Tea service at the main dining room is wonderful. If weather is nice, ask for an outdoor table when reserving. Enjoyed their flight of wines accompanying tea service - nicely paired!
  • You can do it in an hour; but give yourself three!
  • Stop into the AMAZING gardens for a classic Victoria experience! People come from all over the world to see the huge collection of flowers here.
  • You can get free wifi at the main entrance. Summer is the best season to visit this lovely place.
  • Mkemmel bir yer :)
  • Probably a good idea not to go during winter. Nothing was in bloom.
  • Superb High Tea...
  • Plant-gasms mltiples! Para los amantes de la fotografa, obligado llevar lentes macro para capturar flores, hojas, gotas de roco e insectos. Tres horas, el recorrido ideal. El 'sunken garden', must!
  • Listen to the carollers every hour at Christmas. One of the few indulgences Christmas has in our world.
  • Make sure you visit the Japanese garden, the view of Todd inlet at the bottom is amazing!
  • Lovely holiday lights, musical entertainment, Carousel & an ice rink! Great winter fun!
  • You can return tomorrow for a small $4 fee!
  • I suggest you plan for a late afternoon visit, enjoy dinner in the dinning room, then walk through the gardesn again at night (gardens colourfully lit up), then enjoy the fireworks. It is like visitin
  • If you want a seat at the fireworks, bring a warm blanket to sit on and set it up at least 2 hrs prior to show, then walk the gardens and get back to the blanket 30mins before fireworks start
  • Awesome during the winter, fun to see what they do with the lights. Food at the cafe is subpar and expensive so bring a snack.
  • Nice flower gardan
