As tourists, nothing really there to see. We went to the Pharmacy building. It took me a little to find the restrooms.

If you get off at St George station on the bloor line, you can walk through the campus's of Uof T. The library is second to none and many of the buildings and faculties are all heritage buildings a must see!

A definite must see in Toronto, especially if you have a few hours to kill! I'd recommend (although I'm sure they wouldn't!) trying to blag your way around a few of the buildings - the insides are absolutely beautiful. The campus is stunning - well worth a walk on a wintery day.

A great campus with a lot of history. King's college area is a great place especially during the summer

This is a favorite for photographers, most likely thanks to its buildings which look pretty old compared to most in Toronto. It is a good looking campus, but it isn't much of a place to see other than looking around the outside. Like with most universities individual departments have displays or little museums and these can be found by looking... More

Take a turn through UofT...philosophers walk, Trinity College student housing (wow - what a building), George Street, University College (the oldest and perhaps greatest), it is well worth a stroll. Mount the stairs and have a bite in Hart House! You'll love it. It will make you homesick for schooldays past.

Saw the uni on coach tour with snow gently falling. Magical scene and well worth a visit. Also surrounding area very interesting with some fine old homes.

A fun experience was recently had at this wonderful educational establishment. By chance, we heard of its Canine Cognition Lab. Having a young pup who fit the profile for "research dog" I enjoyed watching a session of her being tested. To get to the "testing" we were led through courtyards never seen and into basements that would not have been... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
