TalkWalk Front and Centre Guided Walking Tour of Public Art and Sculpture
USD 31.36
Overview
Dig into Toronto’s street art scene on a walking tour through downtown, where your guide points out over 20 landmarks often missed by visitors and locals alike, from murals to public spaces. Your guide eliminates the hassle of navigating on your own and facilitates conversation and discussion within the small group.
What to Expect

This morning at 10.00am we depart for our guided walk from in front of Union Station (please meet with your guide, under the railway clock, located outside on Front Street, in front of Union Station) and explore examples of public art, public space, sculptures, architecture, and landmarks in the Toronto downtown core. 

 

We’ll discuss what the works say about our city, our people, our history, and our future.

 

The guided walking tour accepts no more than 15 clients to ensure optimum enjoyment for all.  The walking distance is roughly 2.5km, mostly on sidewalks, and includes some stairs.  Duration is around 2 hours.

 

The tour concludes at Union Station.
