Get a taste of what it would have been like to be one of Jennie Butchart’s personally-served guests and indulge in an experience steeped in tradition with an award-winning tea at The Butchart Gardens.
Dine on a phenomenal array of sweet and savory treats that will leave you dreaming of your next bite before immersing yourself in thousands of beautiful blooms as you stroll through the iconic 55-acre grounds.
The perfect opportunity to combine two classic Victorian experiences, this trip is an absolute must for all ages!
Enjoy a scenic cruise from downtown Seattle to downtown Victoria on the Clipper. Hop on the double-decker motorcoach at the Clipper terminal for a narrated tour of Victoria’s landmarks. Upon arrival at The Butchart Gardens, cozy up inside the Dining Room Restaurant and choose from a selection of nine loose leaf teas paired with a classic three-tiered assortment of goodies, ranging from ginger scones to salmon pinwheels.
Afterward, wander along The Gardens’ intimate paths and immerse yourself in floral splendor as you explore the stunning 55-acre grounds. Enjoy a motorcoach ride back to the Fairmont Empress Hotel and use the rest of the evening to check out Victoria’s downtown core.
