U of T campus was really scenic and beautiful. The buildings are so nice and fit to a 100+ old college style. It also has a nice view of CN Tower and we took good pictures. It is also close to Queens Park, and so we visited two places at the same time.

A trip to Toronto is not complete without a visit... More

We were taken there as part of a tour. The building from across the lawn looks very English, and some great photo ops, especially with the flower garden in front!

It looks and feels like you are in Britain. Gothic structures with ivy. Great vista views of CN tower. Plenty of spots for Kodak moments
