Venue Rental

Host your event in a unique gallery space overlooking the Inner Harbour…

The Bateman Gallery is located in the historic Steamship Terminal – a landmark building constructed in 1924 in Victoria’s Inner Harbour. The Gallery is across the street from the B.C. Parliament Buildings and within walking distance of Victoria’s downtown core.

The Bateman Gallery is located on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen Peoples. We operate out of the historic Steamship Terminal and are within walking distance of Victoria’s downtown core.

The Gallery cannot provide you with food and drinks, but we work closely with a range of local caterers, including:

• The London Chef
• Steamship Grill
• Truffles Catering
• Toque Catering

A Bateman staff member will be on site for the duration of your rental for the safety and security of the artwork and facility.

The Gallery has some furniture and accessories at your disposal during your rental. We would be pleased to provide you with a list of supplies that are included with your rental fee, or a list of local rental companies.
