Government House is a beautiful historic building and home of the lieutenant governor of British Columbia. Located in the heart of Rockland in Victoria, the architecture of this building is influenced by colonial European styles, with its high steeped roof and many dormer windows. The house gardens are open throughout the year and are great to stroll around and take in the lush landscape, the excellent Garry Oak forests and a few wandering deer. The Government house frequently hosts local events, receptions, and dinners as well.
