Toronto Old City Hall
Toronto Old City Hall, home of Toronto’s city council from 1899-1965, is one of Toronto’s most impressive buildings, located right across the road from the New City Hall. Now a fully operating courthouse, the historic building is open to visitors from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm on weekdays. Although most of the building is closed off, you can still walk the halls, admiring the grand architecture, magnificent courtrooms and historic artwork.
A Grand Experience
This gorgeous structure, designed by E. J. Lennox, boasts a Romanesque-Revival style of architecture, featuring massive corner towers, a clock tower, and Rome-inspired artwork. The clanging bells of the clock tower will greet you with ancient peels as you approach, and you’ll feel like you’re entering a castle when you walk into the building, not a courthouse. Wonderfully detailed columns line the hallways, and the elegant grand staircase, which branches out to both sides, frames Robert McCausland’s brilliant 16 x 23 foot stained glass window.
This historic relic is accessible via bus, train, subway, and streetcar, giving you lots of options. If you’d rather drive yourself, there’s parking available at the Bell Trinity Square on Bay St, and at the Nathan Phillips Square Garage on Queens St W.
