Discover the Magic of Christmas at the Butchart Gardens

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Fully experience the magic of Christmas at the Butchart Gardens by walking down a path lit by festoon lamp posts, surrounded by tens of thousands of tiny lights perfectly placed among swaths of evergreen and wreaths of holly, listening to carolers and finally arriving at a quiet outdoor ice rink where you are welcome to enjoy a leisurely skate.

Located in beautiful Brentwood Bay, near Victoria, this fifty-five acre stunning floral show garden opens its 25th season of Christmas this December. The gardens receive over one million visitors each year and have been designated a National Historic site of Canada.

There is so much to do at the Garden’s, it’s not hard to see why this is one of the country’s most famous and popular attractions. Enjoy a decadent 3-tiered high tea in the afternoon in the former residence of the Butchart family, try out the fun new authentic children’s carousel or hunt for Christmas presents at the Seed & Gift store where you can find a wide array of tasteful selections.

For five star oceanfront accommodation, just several blocks away from the gardens:

Brentwood Bay Resort, Victoria, BC

Take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the season as Brentwood Bay Resort transforms into a winter wonderland.  Christmas time is truly spectacular at the resort and the luxurious amenities available to guests are uniquely inspired by the surrounding natural elements.
