The Butchart Gardens

About this point of interest


The Butchart Gardens are made up of over 22 breathtaking hectares (55 acres) of beautifully manicured landscape. Although the gardens are best known for their 300,000 bulbs that bloom every spring, there is still something worth seeing and doing at the location year-round. In the height of winter, the gardens celebrate the holidays with the Magic of Christmas, a full month of festive lights, tea parties, and events. Meander through the garden’s many sections, including the Sunken Garden, Japanese Garden, and the prize-winning Rose Garden. From greenhouse tours and guided walks to fountains and a children’s carousel, the Butchart Gardens offer unforgettable experiences that are great for the whole family. Visit Butchart Gardens when you book Gray Line Westcoast Sightseeing’s Victoria + Butchart Gardens tour.
