Toronto’s Distillery District – The Best-Preserved Collection of Heritage Architecture

September 06, 2013

Toronto’s restored Distiller District has undergone some exciting changes in recent years. Once home to the largest distillery in the British Empire, this pedestrian-only village in Toronto now features the region’s best-preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture.

Devoted to promoting arts and culture, the Distillery District provides a charming backdrop for the local one of a kind restaurants, design stores and art galleries; many of which feature original high ceilings and exposed finishes. To ensure the area keeps its unique charm, chain stores and franchises are forbidden in the area. Now isn’t that a refreshing concept!

So the next time you’re visiting Toronto and want to get away from the usual city attractions, take a stroll through the Distillery District and explore a fascinating new area of Toronto.
