Where to stay in Toronto
As the capital of Ontario province in Canada, Toronto is an iconic city with a dynamic downtown area on the shores of Lake Ontario. The soaring skyscrapers are dominated by the renowned CN Tower, while the city also enjoys areas of greenery including High Park and Queen’s Park.
Few visitors will leave Toronto without having scaled the 356m to the Edge Walk on CN Tower. The world’s highest, full-circle, hands-free walk takes place on a 5ft wide ledge that gives outstanding views of the city and Lake Ontario spread out below… if you can bare to look.
If a more sedate way of seeing the city is your thing then a ferry trip to the Toronto Islands will provide plenty of photographic opportunities with the city as a stunning backdrop. Go a step further and visit Main Island - the most popular of the Toronto Islands – where rental bicycles are available for a trip along the beach front.
No trip to Toronto is complete without a visit to Niagara Falls – rent a car in Toronto and you could be staring at one of nature’s truly amazing sights in less than two hours. Add in a boat trip on the Maid of the Mist and it’s easy to get up close and very personal with one of the world’s natural wonders.
Toronto’s subway system means it’s very easy to discover all of the city while staying in a downtown hotel and streetcars are also popular, albeit notoriously slow.

Laid back city with great restaurants and bars. CN tower well worth a trip to the top. Very enjoyable sitting by the lake with a beer in the evening.
I’m quite disappointed when I checked in for my flight back to London last September 2. It was chaos! The queues were horrible. It took people crowding the corridor between the check in bay for the staff to move in and tell us where to go. They need to be more organized.
I always enjoy visiting Toronto. So much to see, so much to do. A day on the Island on a summer day is the best!
Toronto is brilliant for a holiday, it is expensive, but well worth it! So many things to see and do! Don’t just go up the CN tower for the view, it’s a good deal to have lunch there too. Take the short ferry trip over to Centre Island and spend the day. Go to the St Lawrence market, try the peameal bacon on a bun for lunch it is upstairs, it’s amazing, one is probably enough for two people. Visit Ridley’s, the train museum where most of the outside part is free, Ontario Place is amazing too. For three weeks every August the Canadian National Exhibition is also on. Go for a stroll or roller skate or bicycle ride along the boardwalk at the beaches or sunbathe and swim. Also for swimmers there are the Olympic swimming pools which are amazing. There is just so much going on in Toronto if you can afford it.
