Old City Hall, Toronto
(4.2/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Visit an architectural marvel at Old City Hall, one of the city's most grandiose landmarks. The design by architect E. J. Lennox showcases elements of Romanesque Revival style, with the whole building ornamentally covered by art inspired from Ancient Rome. Upon approaching, you can't miss its distinctive clock tower--at 103 m (340 ft), it held the record of tallest structure in Canada from 1899 and 1917. Take binoculars if you can to inspect the four intricately carved gargoyles that flank the clock. Take a guided tour to admire the craftsmanship of the interior, including a mural by George A. Reid and a stained glass window by Robert McCausland. Our Toronto trip itinerary maker makes visiting Old City Hall and other Toronto attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • For those who like architecture, the building is a tower, filled with gargoyles and huge clock that hits every hour. You can't get into the building, but the visit from abroad already worth it!

  • Beautiful building, located in the city centre next to the building of the new town hall. An interesting contrast, with a beautiful square. Very nice.
