    Victoria, British Columbia, is a popular port of call on Alaska Inside Passage cruises, and the Butchart Gardens are one of Victoria's most popular and spectacular attractions.

    Spread out over 55 acres, the gardens include a Sunken Garden, Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, and an Italian Garden. You'll also find fountains, statues, topiaries, totem poles, and water features scattered throughout the magnificent grounds.

    The garden amenities include a fine dining restaurant, a coffee shop, a cafeteria-style eatery, a seed and gift store, and several ice cream and snack stands. The flowers from irises to roses, and everything in between, as well as trees and shrubs are both beautiful and varied. Everywhere you look you'll take in a new and gorgeous view. Whether you plan on visiting anytime soon or not, this photo gallery will not only give you a great overview of the expansive gardens but also give you a preview of the beauty that awaits you if and when you do visit the Butchart Gardens.
