    Nice murals but...
    This was our last stop before leaving Toronto. It was nice to wander around and see most of the alley. There are many interesting murals there. That being said I have to say that this is not a place or an attraction I will send a friend to. Most of the alley smells like pee and poop, and it doesn't look like the city cares much about it because it felt like people go there to dump stuff.

    Worth a stroll, glad we saw it.
    quick walk thru - but take time to look at art, and make sure you see side streets and alley, not to be misled that it is only one little side street or two. Doesn't take long to see it - a handful of blocks. If nearby worthwhile going to see.

    Nice art
    I love art so I truly enjoyed graffiti alley. However I stopped to take a picture and all I could smell was urine. It seemed to be a popular tourist destination spot and the murals were nice.

    Very colorful, but street needs some clean-up
    Located near Toronto's Chinatown, this alley, which runs across three blocks, is full of graffiti, some of which are really beautiful and artistic. I just hope that they would clean the street to make it look wholesome and more attractive to tourists. With all its wall paintings, this alley really looks like an open-air museum for free! 😀

I love street art and so it is something I try and hunt down when I visit anywhere. Whilst visiting my family one of them suggested visiting Graffiti Alley in Downtown Toronto and I was really glad I did. There is some amazing artwork there. It is not just people tagging buildings.

If you like unusual art I definitely recommend visiting this area. It's AMAZING!

We tried using Google Map to walk from Union Station to Graffiti Alley. Got lost and finally found the Graffiti Alley after more than 30 minutes. Too hungry so just ate a pad thai at a corner small restaurant. At first, felt a bit unsafe as some guys in the restaurant were gawking at us.

I liked the Graffiti Alley for the colorful arts and definitely it is a place for good pictures. There were some tourists there so I would say it's pretty safe in daylight.

After visiting for 20 minutes, we headed out to Queen Street, the main shopping belt in Toronto. It is easier walking to Graffiti Alley via the main road of Queen Street.

Wow! This is about four blocks of amazing artwork and graffiti. Some of the pieces are mind blowing, and the best part, is that it is constantly changing and new pieces were being spray painted whilst were walked down it.

Highly recommend this, but bring a camera as you will be snapping away all day!

Free to visit. The alley is fully covered in street art - graffiti. It became famous after the famous Ricky Mercer rants in the alley. Ricky is a famous Canadian journalist. Very respected all around. It is a great place e to visit.

Went there. Felt dangerous. Then left.
Just kidding… The place must be cool for street art lovers and perfect for Instagram photos! I on the contrary only took 1 photo.

It is exactly what it says on the tin. A wide alley running for about 200 yards with the walls, water bins etc covered with graffiti. Worth a look if you are in the area. I was a little disappointed it wasn’t more mural based, but then again it wouldn’t be a graffiti alley then
