Butchart Gardens

Highly recommended
Expanded to approximately 20ha/50 acres, the gardens were started by Jennie Butchart to beautify the quarry pit resulting from her husband's cement business. Don't miss the floral showpiece: the beautiful sunken garden with its green lawns, trees and exquisite flower arrangements that create a whirl of color. The flowers change from season to season, but the effect is always striking. Set in a huge pit with ivy-covered sides, the garden is best viewed from above or from the rock island at its centre, accesible by pathways.
