Near the Royal Ontario Museum at Spadina and Bloor, the University of Toronto campus is definitely worth a look. A variety of architectural styles and heritage buildings in a park-like setting just a few steps away from a major intersection with shops and restaurants. Bring your camera.

Campus buildings are old and have unique styles. I liked to walk even though I wasn't a student there .

Love walking thru the old campus every time I visit Toronto. Also check out the Trinity College buildings. Easily accessible from the 1 subway at Museum or Queens Park, as well as the Spadina & College street tram/bus stops.

Buildings are beautiful, look like small castles. There are many gardens, and you can see squirrels in the summer. Nice place to take a walk in the morning

The U of T has 3 campuses. However the St-George (downtown) campus is the most famous. Definitely a great place to see in the summer. Go see the Hart House and just walk around the campus. See King's College Circle.

Regular walks through the grounds of the University of Toronto from hotel to meetings is the best way to start a day. Every corner provides a peek at the past through the variety of old buildings, statues, grounds as well as a look at modern gems of architecture.

Didn't visit the castle during the day but went in the evening for the haunted house - wow! What an amazing, original event! Really fun, scary and high budget. Loved it!

Walking the pathways, courtyards, and halls of the old U of T campus is great - reserving a table first at the Hart House Gallery Grill for lunch/brunch is a treat.

This is a big university with plenty of stone buildings of the gone by era architectural design. There are lots of open spaces, greens and trees too. Besides enrolling oneself here, coming as a tourist is still very much worth the sights of this environment. Guess its a photographer's paradise too. I noticed a few couples having their wedding photos... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
