With a great range of diverse cuisine, museums and attractions, Toronto is an incredible city break.
The Royal Ontario Museum is a must visit which boasts world class temporary collections and brilliant permanent exhibits including an extensive dinosaur collection and beautifully colourful mineral and gemstone exhibition. Another popular attraction which visitors can easily spend an entire afternoon in is the Art Gallery of Ontario which is home to over 90000 works of art spanning from 100AD until present day showcased in its beautiful curved wood and glass building.
As one of the world’s most multicultural cities, it is not surprising that its restaurant scene is equally varied; offering visitors a wide range of fantastic cuisine from the Americas, Europe and beyond. One stop in the city which all foodies must make is the St Lawrence Market which was named National Geographic’s World Best Food Market in 2012. With over 120 specialty vendors offering quality local produce and international foods as well as artisans selling handmade crafts and jewellery, pick up a one-off souvenir or explore this food heaven.
The CN Tower is still one of Toronto’s iconic buildings and well worth a visit to the top while you are in the city for unbelievable views. Visitors can get 360 degree views, look down onto the city through the glass floor, eat in the iconic revolving restaurant or even take on the Edgewalk where you walk around the roof at a staggering 365m above the ground. For great family days out in the city, head to the Toronto Zoo where you can meet the visiting giant pandas or have an amazing underwater adventure at the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, the country’s largest indoor aquarium.
