OLD TOWN TORONTO
Let me take you on a 2 hours walk in Old Town Toronto!
We’ll visit Corktown Common, the Distillery District, St. Lawrence Market, St. James Cathedral as well as other parks and sights you wouldn’t see without a guide. Street art, architecture and many hidden treasures await you on our walk. I have many stories to tell, having lived in the neighbourhood for many years and I love showing the area to visitors to Toronto.
Within Old Town we’ll visit the St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood, home to famous St. Lawrence Market, this neighbourhood features historic architecture, quaint shops, a sculpture and Victorian garden and unique landmarks. We’ll see the Flatiron Building and St. Lawrence Hall.
We’ll also visit Corktown, named in honour of County Cork by the original Irish settlers who populated this area in the 1800’s and worked in the local distilleries and brickyards.
And we will visit the Distillery District. Founded in 1832, the Gooderham & Worts Distillery became the largest distillery in the British Empire. Today, this historically rich neighbourhood of cobblestone streets and alleyways boasts charming restaurants, original shops and galleries that are unique to the city.
Come join me and see Toronto in a way most tourists never get to see it!
