  • Beutiful display if historical items related to broadcasting industry. Cool place to seat and watch CBC news broadcast in comfy sofas 😉
  • Went to see a recording of Because News. Was entertaining and well organized. Looking forward to going to see another show some day soon.
  • Very nice building but hey, why do you lock your washrooms so early in the day? Not a cool move bro.
  • Nice place. They also shoot some programmes in the lobby area.
  • Tapings are always fun, the staff are friendly and helpful. There's also a great museum on the first floor and historical photos and information.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
