Old City Hall, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
Amazing architecture. Traditionnal style. Close to downtown.
This is a must-visit stop on an architectural tour of Toronto. It is centrally located and is beautiful example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture.
Even if you're not attending the courthouse that it is now, the building is worth seeing anyway. Lots of history, and worth a visit.
Spectacular architecture, inside and out. A great piece of history. Well maintained and a must see.
Beautiful on the outside, incredibly disappointing on the inside, especially after standing in line for half an hour during Doors Open.
