Welcome to Bastion Square!


Bastion Square is located in the heart of downtown Victoria, B.C. The ceremonial entry arch, located at View and Government Streets, welcomes visitors to the original site of old Fort Victoria.

The square looks out on the Inner Harbour and boasts the finest restaurants, pubs, and cafes in Victoria. In the summer, its seasonal artisan market and many outdoor patios make it an ideal spot to visit!
