The Twilight Highlights & Craigdarroch Castle shore excursion is a fantastic cultural component of any cruise to Canada. Accompanied by your local driver/guide, you will depart Ogden driving past by Mile Zero—which is the western end of the Trans Canada Highway, Beacon Hill Park and Thunderbird Park—en route to Craigdarroch Castle, an outstanding landmark home that dates back to the 1880s.
Craigdarroch Castle, one of the most beautiful castles in Victoria BC, is steeped in heritage. Built from 1887 to 1890 by Robert Dunsmuir, this castle in Canada boasts a unique collection of residential stained and leaded glass, period furnishing, and excellent wood paneling and carving. After your visit of the stately home, rejoin your local guide to explore more of Victoria, returning via Chinatown welcomed by the Gates of Harmonious Interest, and passing by Canada's narrowest street, Fan Tan Alley.
Your Canadian shore excursion then continues to the Inner Harbor framed by some of Canada's and Victoria’s most recognizable landmarks, the majestic Parliament Buildings and the ivy-covered Empress Hotel.
This twilight tour is not only a great way to explore a castle in Canada, but to get to know the city of Victoria as well.
- Time permitting a photo stop will be made in the Inner Harbour before your return to the pier and your awaiting ship.
- From the bus to the castle is a casual 5 minute uphill walk and there are 89 steps inside the castle.
