Beautiful display of street art that sparks insight and a sense of awe. Easily accessible, free of charge and a nice walk.

Go on a warm sunny day and see some fantastic street art. All alleyways should be done like this in the City or any city actually.

It really is a museum of its own! The colours, the art, the imagination, the life! It was a dirty alley but I would go there again just to look at all the talent that people have to display.

Lots of graffiti everywhere. Could see some explicit graffiti but most are clean (kid friendly). Good experience to visit to see the graffiti artist talents displayed in public.

This is a cool place to visit for fans of graffiti. It doesn't compare to certain areas of NYC or LA but there's some good art here and the graffiti doesn't get "vandalized" and tagged over by other artists as badly as it does in...More

Hidden gem in the city. Starts at Spadina and goes West for a few blocks. Made more famous by the Rick Mercer show during his rants.

Took my cousin here to get some photos, It's fun, but the graffiti is not especially good. There are a lot of better places for photos if you are looking for a good background.

Appreciate art in all it's forms, this is not an exhibit you should just pass by. Go and explore the talented street art that will amaze you. It also makes for some great back drops for your photo ops!

Wow! This really is an ‘alley’ which has some beautiful artwork- some people are just so talented. I went first thing in the morning, and was only a couple of other people there, so if you wish to avoid the crowds, go early!

Amazing what they can do. Lots of unique talent not only in the 3 blocks but look to the adjacent streets. Good during the day for a stroll.

I don't think that is possible. Go along and see the variety of work - it really is fascinating.

No, I personally would not consider this a romantic spot, it is truly an alley and there is garbage and refuse all around. To avoid crowds I would suggest getting there first thing in the morning.
