    Came upon this alley by chance. Was welcomed to come in and see. Very unique display of artwork. Not very big but interesting place to visit.  more »

    Found this on Trip Advisor as I was looking for something to do before I was able to check into my hotel. There are signs for it and then you walk down an alley into a man-made area which is cute and looks like houses and there is a sitting area. The store itself isn't big but hold tons of prints and some original pieces of art. The owner was very friendly and nice and showed us some prints he thought we would like. I ended up getting a Tragically Hip print. Some pieces of art are only made into 100 copies and I was lucky enough to get #1. The corner has the print number on it. I would recommend this to anyone, whether they like art or not. The staff is friendly and it made the experience so much better.

    Martello Alley is an awesome spot to check out. Unique gifts and a creative feast for your eyes. The setting is quaint.

    Great pictures, trip rather spoilt by over vigilant curators who followed us round the entire time and didn't allow us to enjoy looking at the artworks. Would avoid this gallery in future. Sorry.

    It's host to many local artists and is a very unique experience.

Where to stay in Kingston

The most desirable accommodations in Kingston line the waterfront in the city's downtown region, offering views over the wide St. Lawrence River. If you want to immerse yourself in the city's hippest scene, look slightly west to the area around Queen's University, where you'll also enjoy easy access to some of Kingston's most pleasant parks. Those hoping to take some road trips out of the city should consider staying at one of the many motels and guesthouses along Princess Street--there, you're perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the region.
