Butchart Gardens Illumination

Butchart Gardens is one of Victoria's most famous and popular attractions! Located approximately 35 minutes from downtown Victoria, The Butchart Gardens features over 55 acres of meticulously manicured grounds. Begun in 1904 as an effort to restore a worked-out quarry site, the Butchart Gardens has since been delighting visitors from all around the world. During the drive to the gardens, you will get an orientation of what to see and do. Upon arrival, you can set out on your own self-guided itinerary at your own pace.

From mid June until late August, you can experience Butchart Gardens at night, when they come alive with subtle lighting effects creating a one-of-a-kind floral fantasy land. Thousands of lights, of varying intensity and color, bring out a different look and feel to the gardens.Evenings at the Gardens include entertainment. This nightly transformation into a wonderland of light is known as Night Illuminations

As you make your way around the gardens, you'll walk through intimate stone paths and streams, lined with colorful arrays of flowers and trees. The gardens adjust their floral displays to suit the season, so it is just as spectacular in spring and fall as it is in summer. The Butchart Gardens has been designed to please the eye and generally delight the senses.

The gardens were beautiful and we enjoyed seeing them. The picture is a little deceptive because you mainly see them during daylight. But I would rather view the gorgeous flowers in the daylight anyway. It was well worth the money and would recommend it to others. The shops were fun too and we got some souvenirs.

It was an excellent experience after having seen the garden in day light. One problem with the tour was on return journey it should halt at the Assembly building for a while so that people can enjoy the view in night time and do some photography.Wifi in bus was wonderful
