Awesome area to hang out, grab a meal or drink, see a drag show, shoot some pool, dance, people watch, have an ice cream or shop. Great vibe, friendly and chill. You will have a great time if you are gay or straight! The bars are super fun.

Affectionaly known as the Gaybourhood. Lovely downtown street with a friendly casual neighbourhood feeling. Many restaurants and bars, lively at night, but all serving mediocre food and expensive drinks. Not much else in the way of shopping but you can do OK if food is your main objective. The big fancy Loblaws is on this strip. Interesting architecture nicely preserved.... More

Mostly ordinary gay bars with moderate restaurants, nothing to write home about, most of the people look destitute. but the place is busy Thursdays to Sunday with the usual clones

In late May 2015 I walked slowly from Younge and Bloor to Church Street and discovered several additions to the urban landscape. I had been there before especially to visit the Italian national tourist office once located in the red building near Bloor and Church. Somebody authorized the construction of a huge humongous extra tall tower of a building of... More

This is a nice street in Toronto which lives up to it's name as there are very many Churches along it's length. There are also some interesting neighbourhoods along it's length. Worth visiting!

I have lived in this neighbourhood, and just love it. I find it to be such a friendly and fun neighbourhood for people of all kinds, with a lot of great restaurants, some shops (including chains like David's Tea and the Body Shop), and really fun bars with great music (north of Church and Carlton). World Pride 2014 was an... More

I always love going to the village, I feel at home, the people are welcoming and inviting. the whole vibe i get from walking up Church is unlike any other place ive ever been. The bars and cafes have amazing food and drink as well as the best staff of any bar ive ever been too.

We didn't do much besides walk around and enjoy the churches and the flowers in the park. It's a very scenic area, also popular for some other cultural scenes, but we were just there for the outdoor stroll. There were two very beautiful churches which we visited, although I can't remember the names of either. Still, it's a very beautiful... More

Colourful Church-Wellesley Village in Toronto has to be the world's most welcoming LGBT village for heterosexuals! It is even more so during Toronto Pride when we can enjoy the Pride Parade on Yonge followed by the StreetFair along Church. And there's now a new reason to take a walk around Church Street: the Murals Project. On one end, there the... More
