Owner description: 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.

Nice area with brick-lined streets closed off to vehicles.
Little shops and art galleries with beautiful and expensive stuff. Good food for all budgets.
Nice place to spend an afternoon wandering.

“A taste of history”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

I loved that this is pedestrian-only, and it still had the brick streets. Each business is independently owned; not a single one is a franchise. I enjoyed the art gallery, the brewery pub, and Soma chocolatier as well as the overall historic feel. No worries for those who choose not to partake in alcohol -- the area only USED to distill whiskey; now it is just a historic district!

“Segway Walking Tour of the Distillery District in Toronto”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We spent a fun couple of hours touring the Distillery District with Gavin of Segway Walking Tours. His knowledge of the Gooderham and Wort families was excellent and we learned a lot about our own city's history. The tour also included a chocolate sample from Soma (yummy) and beer samples from Mill Street Brewery. It was a great way to spend a Friday afternoon in our own city. Would highly recommend it.

“The Distillery”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I love to go here in December when they celebrate a German Christmas Market. It is all decorated for the holidays and is so nice and cozy you feel like your in Germany. Lots of out door venders selling all sorts of goodies for the holidays from chocolate to home made crafts. Also there are areas of seating with fire pits so grab a hot chocolate and go sit by the fire and warm up. There are also lots of buildings with venders inside selling stuff as well as many places to eat too!
