Despite visiting Victoria often, we'd somehow never discovered Abkhazi Garden. Glad we did. It is a lush garden of several acres, with an interesting and romantic back story, winding paths, quiet ponds, art sculptures, ancient rock outcroppings, towering oaks, huge Rhododendrons, many ferns and flowers,...More

Lovely lovely gardens in a tranquil and quiet setting. The history of the house & gardens is a fascinating one!. Be sure to have tea at their tea room!

We visit d this garden on an excursion from the Norwegian Jewel on 9/15/17. The garden was beautiful, but the high tea was exceptional. We enjoyed it very much!

We went for the afternoon tea and were offered several combination of small finger foods, good enough for a late lunch. The garden was an after thought, as the view outside the window looked very attractive, and boy we were delighted with this side tour.
