Fodor's Review

James Douglas, the former colonial governor for whom Douglas Street was named, chose this spot for the original Fort Victoria and Hudson's Bay Company trading post in 1843. In summer the square comes alive with street performers, crafts vendors, and a weekly farmers' market. The former courthouse houses the Maritime Museum of British Columbia.
