Victoria has a superb shopping scene. You can pick up just about anything you’d expect to find in a larger city, plus a few things you wouldn’t. So many artists and artisans call this place home that unusual and one-of-a-kind items are everywhere.

Art, crafts and foodstuffs made by local First Nations peoples are also widely available. What’s more, Victoria has a love-affair with all things British: scores of shops specialize in imported British wares, textiles or food. Many stores also operate in well-preserved Victorian or Edwardian buildings.
