The world renowned Royal British Columbia Museum and IMAX Theatre is two blocks away and right next to the legislature buildings of British Columbia. Take a whale watching tour, a scenic sailboat ride, a harbour ferry, or a fishing charter. Indulge in one of the Historic Walking Tours, some ghostly, some not; or perhaps a carriage ride. Take a bus tour to Butchart Gardens or visit The Victoria Bug Zoo. All of this is within a 5 minute walk from your front door and there is so much more to do within a 20 minute walking radius. You will be busy while you are here in order to experience all of the "must do" things Victoria has to offer.
Local public transportation is at your door step. Getting here, or going back, the BC Ferries Connector bus service, providing service to The Gulf Islands, Vancouver and the Lower Mainland is just one block away. The Victoria Airport is 30 minutes away with convenient shuttle service (YYJ Shuttle) available, also just one block away. The Coho Ferry to Washington State leaves from the Inner Harbour. The float planes fly daily straight out of The Inner Harbour traveling to Seattle and Vancouver. The Victoria Clipper passenger-only-ferry sails into downtown Seattle and offers ground transport shuttles to other destinations in Seattle, such as the airport.
Bike storage can be a tricky issue. Every building has a different bike storage policy and there are no guarantees that spots will be available. Every building has a zero tolerance for bikes in the lobbies or elevators, fines will be issued for such. Unfortunately this building has no availability in the bike room.
We recommend renting bikes while you are here, many of the bike rental companies will allow them to be stored there at the end of the day even if you rent them for a week.
If you have a large vehicle, please be sure and check the garage clearance for the building to make sure your vehicle will fit.+ More
