If you live in a city with more than 1000 people living there, you will not find this place interesting. Only shops, regular shops like any other place on earth. Don't wast your time in Victoria going there. There are many beautiful places to go.

I liked looking at the food stuff and good chocolates, Raw kombucha too. Fun little shops and lovely pastries. I bought quite a few different pastries from the bakery shops, for those of you who like sweet treats like I do!

Many of the shop spaces are empty and the square isn't being used (it's winter). Place might be more lively in the summer. Worth going into if you are walking by but not a destination.

Small square with a few craft shops and Asian food. A lot under construction especially on the ground floor. Some unique little outlets.

Nice part of town where you can go shopping or just sit down and enjoy a tasty waffel. Some unique shops are located in this area, which is just a short walk from the Inner Harbour (follow signage or tourist maps)!
