Picturesque entrance from Rue Sherbrooks;. View of Montreal Parc from entrance.. Colorful fall foliage & architecture of historic buildings make the campus worth a walk through.

We rode bikes past the college and it was neat that our tour guide pointed out how small McGill was, people back then were so much shorter! If you have time to hear the story of how it was built and by whom, you should!...More

This campus is beautiful. You can walk through/around after going to Mount Royal. You would never know you were in a city. It has such a special feel and it really was enjoyable to walk around.

One of Canada's oldest places of higher education, McGill is in the middle of Montreal but retains a lovely and historic campus feel with intriguing architecture. Well worth a stroll around the campus. They offer a self-guiding tour as a downloadable app. Recommended.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

We stayed in old Montreal which was a good 35 minute walk from McGill. I would highly recommend staying in OM but not if you have to get to McGill daily.

I noticed a Metro entrance/exit on Rue Catherine and from there it would be about a five block walk. I would suggest downloading a metro map from Montreal's transportation site.
