This former private garden is just east of downtown. It is an easy bus ride back & forth. It is a romantic garden for all seasons. Late April is especially nice with 100 year old rhodies blooming with woodland plants underneath. I enjoy lingering in the garden and will often bring a book along. The mid-century Abkhazi house serves a... 更多
A perfectly sized garden for a leisurely stroll and with an interesting story. Do stop in the gift shop and and have tea in their tea room overlooking the garden. Enjoy the variety of bone china dishes and tea pots. They'll even make you coffee if you must :-)
The gardens are beautiful and just a short bus ride from Downtown Victoria. We went during September, and it was hardly busy, allowing us to enjoy ourselves and take our time as we walked around. They also hand out information sheets which allowed us to learn about the different types of plants and flowers. They do an amazing job of... 更多
This beautifully laid out garden was lovely even in the winter season, with color from carefully chosen foliage and berries--even a few blooms! Even the rain added texture to the ponds. Ask at the teahouse for the map/guide, and look for plant lists in the summerhouse. Elevenses, Afternoon tea, or light lunch available in the original residence. If you need... 更多
We visited Abkhazi gardens in November and there was still lots to see. Hard to belive that these gardens were all developed by just two people.

The plants are beautiful, and the garden is nicely maintained. There is also a tea room in the main house where they... 更多
Well managed facility that's worth a visit. Admission by voluntary donation. Didn't eat there but lovely tea room.
This is a lovely garden hidden away in a nice neighbourhood. It's very peaceful to walk through and is well looked after by the attendants. They love this garden and are very knowledgable about all the plants, trees and flowers. The history is very interesting and it is a true labour of love. The tea room looked welcoming but we... 更多
My wife and I had the pleasure of having high tea in the garden. Everybody knows about Butchart Gardens but Abkhazi is a hidden gem just outside Victoria. The views are gorgeous and although the garden is small, it is quite serene. We definitely enjoyed tea and walking through Abkhazi Garden!
