A very charming and charismatic building located approx. 150 metres from the new city hall buildings. It's a great place to photograph and to admire built in what appears to be brownstone fashion and gothic all looking.

The old city hall building is in downtown Toronto is is a short distance from the current city hall and right next to the Eaton Centre. The architecture is magnificent and well worth admiring whilst you are in the area.

Old City Hall is an interesting counterpoint to so many large and modern structures that surround it. Adjacent to new City Hall and the Toronto sign, don't miss this area.

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

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
