Getting Around in Victoria


All conference events will be held at Harbour Towers and everything you might need to survive your stay in Victoria, from groceries to bars to coffee shops, is within walking distance.

However, if you want to explore, our Victoria Transit system can take you to the University of Victoria, across the harbour to Esquimalt/Vic West, or north to Sidney and the Swartz Bay Ferries. Schedules, trip planners, and fares available here.

Things to Do in Victoria

Check out Harbour Towers' page of things to do in Victoria (including distances from hotel) here.

If you're short on time definitely still consider taking a quick wander over to the Royal BC Museum (with National Geographic Imax Theatre).

A few of the many notable historical spots to check out include Market Square and Chinatown right downtown, and the Craigdarroch Castle Historic House Museum (a lavish Victorian castle built in 1887-1890 for coal baron Robert Dunsmuir), only 3 km east from Harbour Towers.
