Winter fun for the family on weekends in December 

For the first time, the iconic Hatley Castle is open during the winter for touring, holiday photos and family fun. Wear your matching PJs or your best sweater, grab a warm drink and see the Castle dressed up in all the beauty of the season. 

Warm up or snap a selfie by the roaring main fireplace, tour the museum, and check out the view from the top of the grand staircase (not open during summer tours!). Royal Roads University staff will also be on site to answer your questions. 

Make an afternoon of it

Plan to make an afternoon of it and visit this historic place, located on the traditional Lands of the Lekwungen-speaking Peoples, the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. 

Explore the manicured gardens and natural beauty of Hatley Park, a National Historic Site and home to Royal Roads University, just 25 minutes from downtown Victoria, British Columbia.
