    A Spot of Old England in Victoria


    I guess this is what it is now called, but I know it as the "Olde England Inn."

    Anyway, this is a really neat place to stay. Having stayed in a number of often very old inns and hotels in the UK, many being half-timber and at least partly Elizabethan/Tudor structures, I can say that this place does a pretty good job of reproducing the feel of many of those old British inns, right down to the creaking stairs and halls. It has good English food, including breakfast, and neat rooms set in nce grounds.

    I should note that while I have been here twice, my last stay here was 1996, so things may have changed.

    Unique Quality: It reproduces old English inns better than I have seen outside of Britain, has lovely, Tudor-style architecture, beautiful gardens, and includes the Ann Hathaway cottage, itself a common tourist attraction.

    Directions: It's in Esquimalt, west of Victoria proper. Take the Johnson Street bridge out of downtown and head out on Eqsuimalt Rd., then turn left on Lampson Street.

    English Inn Resort


    Imagine an Elizabethan style mansion located in temperate Victoria, BC. This is the English Inn Resort. I spent one night here in February 2003, and what an incredible place! We had a suite that included a giant bed (with bedposts & curtains), our own fireplace, a couch, television, private bathroom, and a view of the garden and ocean. Did I mention the ceiling was about three floors high? And the room was HUGE! I felt like a princess, even if it was for one night. When we arrived, we had candles lit, a bottle of champagne on ice, and four delicious cookies awaiting. It was very romantic!

    Unique Quality: The English Inn's architecture is what gives it its unique quality.

    Breakfast is included. The chef will make you an omelette or a waffle, and you can have bacon, sausages, hash browns, toast, muffins, croissants, fresh fruit, yogourt, cereal, plus an arrangement of tea, coffee or fruit juice. It was a perfect way to wake up on a cold rainy February morning.

    Also, located on their 5 acre garden is is the Verona village, Shakespeare's house and Anne Hathaway's cottage! Complete replicas of the real thing, including a duplicate of Anne's garden. Having been to Stratford-Upon-Avon myself back in 96, it kind of felt like deja-vu!

    Directions: It's located a 10 minute drive west outside of downtown Victoria nearby the neighbouring suburb of Esquimalt.

Annie Hathaway's Cottage

by sunnywong

Step back in time to visit the full size version of William Shakespeare's wife birthplace, located amidst the 5 acres of the English Inn & Resort country garden estate.

The thatched cottage is authentically furnished with genuine antiques. The tour gives you an insight into the life and times of Shakespearean England and the derivation of many of our quaint expressions. The Enhanced Cottage Tour Experience is a very entertaining theatrical production, which incorporates the cottage tour with live vignettes of Shakespeare's most popular literary works. Envision Romeo calling to his sweet lover Juliet as she pears out of the cottage's 2nd floor window. Inquire about our interactive version for the true Shakespearean enthusiast.

Stroll through the tranquil gardens and English Village, have afternoon tea or enjoy classic English fare in the Dining Room & Lounge overlooking 5 acres of beautiful country gardens.

The scariest house I've ever seen!

I spotted this rather spooky house in West Victoria, on my way back from the English Inn & Resort. Can you imagine what it looks like on Halloween?!!
