Across the street from our hotel in the heart of downtown Victoria you cannot miss the Legislative Buildings! A tour of the buildings is offered to the public free of charge from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm during the summer. Throughout the week, you are able to help yourself to a self-guided tour; however, on the weekends and holidays you must join a tour or reserve one. Tours are offered several times every hour! The Legislative also has a dining room available to the public from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm to eat at.
Construction of the Legislative Buildings began in 1893 and was completed in 1897. However, upgrades and details continued up until 1915. This means the Legislative Buildings are around 100 years old!
If you are not interested in participating in an indoor tour, it is definitely worth a quick walk by to absorb the beauty of the exterior structures. The Legislative Buildings are in the heart of downtown, close to other tourist attractions!
