Walk or Cycle to Venus

Venus Sophia is only a short 10 minute walk from the inner harbour and around the corner from Centennial Square and the Victoria Public Farmer’s Market. We’re ideally located in the heart of the city, surrounded by an array of wonderful local shops as well as cultural and historic places of interest such as the Mcpherson Theatre & Fan Tan Alley, the narrowest street in Canada. Why not go on an independent Chinatown Tour and then stop by to reflect with a cuppa and a treat? Here’s a map to get you started. If you are cycling to Venus Sophia there is a parking station right across the street in front of Venus Sophia. Ideal if you join us in the cafe or at the outdoor seating so you can watch your bike too! Follow the link for more info on cycling downtown.
