The Distillery District is an internationally acclaimed village of brick-lined streets and dozens of vibrantly restored Victorian Industrial buildings. It’s one of Ontario’s hottest tourist attractions and home to live theatres, galleries, fashion, design and jewelry boutiques, unique cafes and award-winning restaurants. It’s all completely closed to traffic and just a few minutes walk from downtown Toronto.

For tourists, walking from downtown Toronto to the Distillery District is a worthwhile 30 minutes trip. You may border the lake for a while and then ten minutes in deserted streets before reaching the district. Lots of shops with antiques and nice bars to relax...More

Fun to walk around, have a bite to eat, sit and listen to music. Easy to get to by foot or bus from Union Station. I have only been during the day. Many great shops and Art Studios to browse.

Tastefully done. Interesting shops. Fun to look around and see the sites. It's an old Victorian set of buildings.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

If it's art galleries you want, Queen West might be a better bet. It's a stretch of Queen St. west of downtown. TripAdvisor won't let me post a link, but google "Queen West galleries" for what's happening at the moment... More
