During the summer there are great outdoor eating spots - try The Local at the Warf Strret end of the square and the Irish pub up the hill on Government Street. Weekends have a market with amazing local artisans displaying their wares. Good parking off Warf Street including large spots for trucks.
My boyfriend and I went for a walk around town today and found Bastion Square it was busy due to the patios that the restaurants have. The shops were pretty neat and so were the art that laid out. Maybe it was because it is winter but the square itself was just pretty okay. I am excited to try it...
This square is set in the heart of Victoria and offers a cavalcade of things to do and see in the summer months, A great place to stop and eat, drink or just watch people on your walking tour of downtown Victoria.
