You'll find a world-class museum, a symphony orchestra, opera, theatre and cutting-edge dance companies. There are up-and-coming rock bands and a burgeoning jazz scene.

Cruise to Victoria, Very English Feel on Vancouver Island – Canada
Victoria, located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, is the capital city of British Columbia, Canada. Yet it's a small, relaxed and pleasantly sophisticated place, with a quaint waterfront area and an undeniably English feel. Filled with museums and art galleries, castles, landmarks, gardens and zoos, Victoria's attractions invite you into a world of history, entertainment and colour. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants, in combination with a very generous dose of natural beauty. Victoria's population of 325,000 occupies a tiny island, one-fifth the size of England – but far more wild. So wild that parts of the island still don't have any roads, and the only way to get around is by boat, or on foot. You'll find bright red double-decker buses and lovely cream teas. But for a taste of 'colonial' Victoria, head to the time-warped atmosphere in the Bengal Lounge in the Fairmont Empress. Enjoy a drink in a leather armchair in front of a roaring fire, while the Bengal tiger mounted above the mantelpiece keeps watch. In the words of Rudyard Kipling, Victoria is like "Brighton Pavilion, with the Himalayas for a backdrop".
