Shopping

Shopping in Victoria is fabulous! Whether you are just window shopping or on a major shopping spree in Victoria you can browse quaint shops, local markets and major shopping malls to find your heart's desire. Victoria offers everything from antiques to the wares of local artisans and the designs of the hippest trendsetters. The city's layout encourages strolling and exploring the many side streets and alleyways at an easy pace.

Government Street

From the Inner Harbour, wander up Government Street to find the perfect gift or souvenir. Stop to sample handmade chocolates or the perfect cup of tea or coffee. Discover native art, jewellery, fashion and a variety of specialty stores as well as a major shopping centre along the bustling sidewalks of this iconic street.

Trounce Alley

Four blocks along Government Street, on the right hand side, is Trounce Alley, one of Victoria's best-kept secrets. European fashions and gift shops await.

Bastion Square

Across the street from Trounce Alley, find Bastion Square; once the site of Victoria's Court House, Law Chambers, a brothel and several hangings, Bastion Square is now animated with shops and restaurants. In the summer, take in the Bastion Square Festival of the Arts, a bustling market where vendors and local artisans sell their handmade arts and crafts.

Yates Street and Johnson Street

Just beyond Bastion Square, turn left off Government Street onto Yates Street and beyond to Johnson Street. Wander among amazing shops set in heritage buildings restored to maintain an old-town ambience. Lower Johnson Street, known as "Lo Jo", is a district of exclusive fashion and design boutiques.

Chinatown

Enter Canada's oldest Chinatown through the Gate of Harmonious Interest, at the corner of Fisgard and Government Streets. Shop for art, curios, home furnishings and Asian wares. Stroll down Fan Tan Alley, North America's narrowest street. At its narrowest, the alley is only 0.9 metres (3 feet) wide. Once notorious for its many opium dens and gambling houses, Fan Tan Alley is now lined with shops and restaurants.

Antique Row and Mosaic Village

Fort Street has long been known as "Antique Row" for its many auction houses and antique shops, but the arrivals of several international restaurants, fashion boutiques, coffee shops, bakeries, book stores and jewelers have given the area a fresh feel. The area of Fort Street near the intersection with Cook Street has recently been rebranded as "Mosaic Village" - a testament to its newfound diversity and identity. The area's specialty antique shops offering rare china, silverware, toys and furniture are now interspersed with an array of fitness, fashion, food and sustainability-orientated independent businesses as well.

Off the Beaten Path

Victoria's shopping experience also extends beyond famous Government Street storefronts and the downtown core. Off the beaten path and just minutes from downtown, shoppers will find several major suburban shopping centers with hundreds of stores to browse.
