Guide to Victoria Park

Victoria Park's quaint village atmosphere belies its location in the heart of the East End.

Victoria Park boasts beautiful old buildings, boutiques, restaurants and pubs in a tranquil atmosphere away from the hubbub of the city.

The park itself is home to picturesque lakes, fountains and cherry trees. With an old English Garden, a children's playground and skate ramps the park has something for everyone. It also plays host to a number of festivals through the summer months, putting it at the heart of the community.

Close to the City, Victoria Park is a popular location for both families and young couples.
