Tips van locals
Built by coal baron Robert Dunsmuir during the reign of Queen Victoria and now a National Historic Site, Craigdarroch Castle has been meticulously restored, giving visitors a glimpse of privileged life in the 1890s.
This building was designated as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1992. The history of how it was built and who built it is quite interesting. It was constructed in the late 1800's by a wealthy coal baron, Robert Dunsmuir for himself and his wife Joan. Robert died in 1989, 17 months before it…
Amazing castle, just up the street. If you love history, this is the place to go.
Craigdarroch Castle is a definitive Victorian experience. Built between 1887 and 1890 on a hill overlooking the City of Victoria, this legendary mansion now shines over the city.

“Great place to explore during the day. At night the whole building lights up. Great sight to see! There is also a legislative dining room where MLAs and the general public can eat together. One of Victoria’s best kept secrets! ”
