Victoria Day Trip with The Butchart Gardens

1 Day

Visit The Butchart Gardens, one of Victoria’s most popular attractions, on your Victoria day trip from Seattle. The Butchart Gardens were founded in 1904 when 55 acres of abandoned lime quarry was transformed into a stunning sunken garden with seasonal floral displays, all done in the Victorian tradition. This convenient Butchart Gardens tour picks you up upon arrival at the Victoria Clipper terminal and you are shown the city highlights on your way to The Butchart Gardens. It is the best way to get to the gardens and a visitor favorite!
