Wonderful place to roam and explore during the Christmas season. Alcoholic drinks and food tasting stalls located throughout. Festive atmosphere with warming towers located at various stopping points. Grab a warm drink, bring hat and mittens, and take in the people, music, shopping and charm in this section of the city. Various pathways weave throughout, turning the corner brings new... More

This place is fun with nothing going on so the Xmas Market just adds to it. Walk around the different booth. Browse the stores. Go into one of the great restaurants for lunch or just buy a grilled cheese sandwich or smoked Turkey leg. Tried Mulled wine for the 1st time. Sweat and warms you up. Just a great time.... More

On a Friday afternoon. Not crazy yet. Nice booths, friendly people and food galore. I had a cornish pasty from a permanent cafe at the entrance. Very solid, very tasty. Place to warm up.

We went as a family of 5. One of the first things we did was the ferris wheel. The ticket booth sold us tickets under the premise a child under 3 feet is free accompanied by a paying adult. We arrive at the wheel and tell us our child also need a ticket but also said he can't ride because... More

Great location and nice decorations. We went during the evening so that's we could view the market lit up with the decorations. It was a very nice display. The market was very nice with some nice stores and restaurants. Looking forward to going back when it is not quite as busy.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
