The Butchart Gardens
When Robert and Jennie Butchart came to live at Tod Inlet on Vancouver Island, they named their home ‘Benvenuto’ – Italian for ‘welcome’. Jennie began a lifelong project to create a garden. With great vision, she transformed the barren limestone quarry into what is now 22 hectares (55 acres) of breathtaking gardens. Discover the gardens on a self-guided daytime walk and enjoy afternoon tea. Come a little later to enjoy fine dining and local wines in the Dining Room Restaurant, or relax in the conservatory atmosphere of the Blue Poppy Restaurant featuring seasonal menus. Enjoy flowers, fountains and landscape in a different light with Night Illuminations from June to September. Butchart Gardens opens daily at 9am, except Christmas Day, when it opens at 1pm. Closing times change seasonally.
