Old City Hall, Toronto Reviews

  • Love the architecture of this building have always brought my friends and family here for a photo op whenever they visit the city. It is a lovely addition to the Toronto downtown centre core! The City has done a good job preserving this historicqlbuilding and I hope it stays for a long time.

  • This is one of my favourite places in all of Toronto. The exterior is beautiful, matched with a gorgeous interior. Marble and wood make up the décor, providing visitors a unique taste of the beauty that is Toronto’s historical architecture. I highly recommend checking this building out; even if you only go to see the outside, it will be worth it. Keep in mind you will have to go through security, and photography inside isn’t allowed. You must also consider the building is an active courtroom, so please be respectful to those working. Despite that, you CAN go on weekends. There are bail hearings that take place throughout weekend mornings, and those are always fun to go.

  • A historical landmark with a long political and now legal history. Currently it's a courthouse with several public interest services and a contingent of officers on guard. Doors Open invites the community to see a glimpse behind the curtain and experience it for themselves.

  • Beyond angry and disappointed with the judge appointed to myself and the group of people with me. I was there to pay my red light ticket and I have never felt more disrespected. The female judge essentially told me to be quite when I was explaining to her why I was there on behalf of my mom, which is totally legal, and made me cry infront of everyone in the room. She should be looked into about her behaviour towards CITIZENS who GIVE THEIR TAX DOLLARS to THIS COURT HOUSE and ultimately HER. Noone should EVER speak to anyone that way, does not matter if they are a judge or not. I am a young girl who has never had any violations and I was treated this way? Disgusted. No wonder people detest law enforcement. Disgusting behaviour I saw today.

  • The old design is very nice, it's nice to walk down the street and you can buy a nice ice cream.
