Just a 10-minute drive east of downtown Victoria, you'll find Oak Bay Village. This stately area is home to large houses, gorgeous mountain and ocean views and a quaint yet upscale shopping area.

The village is often referred to as the most British area on the island, with numerous tea rooms, cafes, pubs, fish and chips restaurants, shops and galleries. Browse the numerous clothing, craft and gift shops and stop for a snack and a sip of tea (check out The Blethering Place Tea Room).

Once you've finished exploring the shops, you may want to continue your explanation of this beautiful neighbourhood, taking a walk or bike ride down Scenic Marine Drive.
