Hatley Park National Historic Site

Explore Hatley Park National Historic site, home to Royal Roads University, and experience the history of this Edwardian estate that has become an important part of Vancouver Island’s history. While Hatley Castle is the centrepiece of the estate, there’s much more to the park: gorgeous Japanese, Italian, and Rose formal gardens that follow Edwardian design; 15km of walking and hiking trails through old growth forest; a protected migratory bird sanctuary; an historic First Nations’ site; and a spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains across the Juan de Fuca Strait. You’ll find everything that makes the West Coast unforgettable only 20 minutes from downtown Victoria.
