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.

This is a nice place to meet friends, have a good coffee and wander around. There are plenty of touristy shops and places to eat. The Christmas Market was over priced but fun. I often find little unusual gifts in the shops there.

This is a place to visit when the weather is good, particularly in the summer to enjoy outdoor patios. A very special place to visit in December when the Christmas Market is on and the place is decorated like a winter wonderland. Whenever I've been...More

The distillery district has it all...charming shops, the best chocolate in town (soma), and great coffee and pastries. Brick walkways and old world charm. The Christmas market has gotten worse...too commercial and now paid entry. Avoid peak times and weekend evenings in high season. Nothing...More

Parking is a bit of a challenge anytime but during the week the south west parking lots are a good place to start . There is some street parking North and east of the east entrance but usually very scarce.

If it's art galleries you want, Queen West might be a better bet. It's a stretch of Queen St. west of downtown. TripAdvisor won't let me post a link, but google "Queen West galleries" for what's happening at the moment... More
