The inner harbour waterfront in Victoria, B.C. is dominated by two buildings – the Fairmont Empress Hotel and this one, the British Columbia Legislature. Tours run every 30 to 60 minutes depending upon the day but we missed an official slot on the last morning we spent in the city so took a quick self-guided wander around the interior of the building.
