Why take this tour?

Toronto has been described as a “mosaic of neighbourhoods.” Yorkville with its fascinating history, chic boutiques, fine art galleries, luxury hotels, award-winning landscape architecture, charming cottages and heritage buildings provides the perfect backdrop for a delightful stroll. On this 45-minute self-guided audio walking tour, you’ll experience Yorkville’s evolution from a small Victorian village on the outskirts of Toronto to the centre of a world-famous music scene during the 1960s and 70s, and finally to the upscale retail destination replete with exclusive residences that it is today. You’ll peel back its layers of history while learning about the architects, personalities and developers who have left their mark on its urban fabric. You'll see how new construction and the conversion of heritage properties continues to transform the character of what was once considered “the Canadian Haight-Ashbury”.
