And equally so during the day. This is an extremely handsome building. We took a self guided tour of the inside and enjoyed the Jubilee stained glass windows in particular.

Lovely historic building by the harbour. You can have a wander. but I recommend the free tour. We didn't need to book, we just turned up for one of their many tours a day. Beautiful inside with a bit of a history lesson thrown in.

This is worth the stop and you can sit in on a session of Parliament. The building is beautiful with a lovely rotunda and beautiful stain glass windows.

Can't miss this iconic site. The Parliament Buildings are in the inner harbour. Be sure to eat lunch in the Legislature Cafe and have a tour to learn the function and history.

Such a treat to see the Parliament Buildings day and night. We enjoyed the majestic lawns and flowers. This part of downtown Victoria is eye opening and a beautiful landscape. Never disappointed with the view and the cleanliness of the area. Love BC!

Really beautiful buildings- we only looked at the outside as it was a weekend. And it's great how it is lit up at night.

It turns out the 2017 is the 100-year anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in Canada, so the tour guide was playing the 1st woman elected to Parliament and showed us the various aspect of the building and it history in light of how women became involved...More

Hi, I doubt there is a storage location for your bags at the Parliament Building however your hotel will likely hold your bags for you if you arrive before you can check into your room.
