Shopping (Kevin Arnold photo)
Victoria has a superb shopping scene, with anything that would be found in a larger city, plus a few things that wouldn't.
So many artists and artisans call this place home that unusual and one-of-a-kind items are everywhere. Aboriginal art, crafts and foodstuffs are also widely available.
What's more, Victoria has a love-affair with all things British: scores of shops specialize in imported British wares, textiles or food. Many stores also operate in well-preserved Victorian or Edwardian buildings.
Victoria's British heritage is very much in evidence in the shops along Government Street. Lots of English woollens and bone china, Scottish tartans and Irish lace are available here, while a restorative cup of tea is never far away.
Government Street also has many stores that specialize in Canadiana, First Nations art, original jewellery and fashion. Government Street is located in downtown Victoria, between Johnson and Humboldt Streets.
