View Royal, formerly known as Craigflower Country, was part of the larger Esquimalt district from the early days of Fort Victoria. Its history is linked to the colonial beginnings of British Columbia and its capital city, Victoria.

This illustrated history looks back on View Royal's First Nations heritage, it's place in Governor James Douglas's vision for the new colony, its importance to the Royal Navy in Esquimalt Harbour, and its transition from a sparsely populated farming community to a modern residential suburb that still celebrates its past heritage - including two of British Columbia's oldest pubs still thriving on their original sites.
