Fodor's Expert Review Bastion Square

Downtown Victoria Plaza/Square/Piazza
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, and crafts vendors (Thursday–Saturday), and on Sunday a weekly farmers' market. The former courthouse houses the Maritime Museum of British Columbia.
