Victoria's Cook Street Village features one-of-a-kind shopping and restaurants in a European-like setting.
Tucked away in Victoria’s Fairfield neighbourhood, Cook Street Village is an earthy, eclectic, commercial corridor that attracts the sort of visitors who live and breathe by a simple mandate: relax and enjoy.
Cook Street Village offers a slower pace, an array of restaurants and shops, and a neighbourhood atmosphere that blends small town ambiance with Old World European flavour. Several organic food markets beckon with fresh, local produce and organic deli items. Three coffee houses in the Village offer plenty of sidewalk camaraderie under colourful awnings and on timber-framed patios.
Canada's Palm Tree Capital.
Just a short drive from downtown Victoria in Beautiful British Columbia, you'll find a little piece of heaven we call Oak Bay, the oceanside community that some say is "more English than England itself."
The attractive residential community of Oak Bay is considered the most "British" neighbourhood in Greater Victoria. Established by wealthy city residents anxious to escape the mud flats of the Inner Harbour, Oak Bay still retains a distinct genteel flavour, reflected by its village shops, restaurants and tearooms.
No matter what time of year you visit, there is always a warm welcome awaiting you in charming Oak Bay.
