In Toronto, all roads lead to Queen, the street of many colours. Starting in the east at Neville Park, it cuts through the city all the way to its western edge. Along the way it passes through quiet residential neighbourhoods, historic districts, high-rise enclaves and one of the most exciting and lively shopping areas in the world. Mention Queen Street to any Torontonian of any age or background and he or she will tell you, it’s the place to be.

Lined with some of the city’s most imposing structures, including both Toronto’s city halls, Old and New, as well countless low-rise buildings that are reinvented over and over again, Queen presents a different face to every successive generation. For tourists and locals alike, this is the street that never loses its appeal.
