Victoria

Victoria's inner harbour

Victoria is British Columbia's capital, though Vancouver is it's largest city. Located on Vancouver Island, Victoria enjoys a temperate climate. It has a distinctly British feel, with grand colonial era buildings, red double decker buses and English high teas being served in the Empress Hotel.

The city is the seat of the Provincial government and employs a lot of government officials as a consequence.
