Market Square

Victoria BC Canada Visitor's Guide

Market Square is a popular shopping destination in Victoria BC, but one with a sordid history.

Built in the late 19th century, the three story building was a destination where young men would visit for a good time!

Sailors, lumberjacks and whalers would frequent the square on their days off.

Live festivals are held frequently in the square.
