Toronto, all the world in one great city

Known in the film industry as Hollywood North, Toronto has plenty of iconic locations you might recognise from the big screen. 


But Canada’s most multicultural and forward-looking city is a great destination in its own right. In spring, as the city thaws from the winter freeze, the boardwalks, cycle paths and artificial beaches on the banks of Lake Ontario throng with sporty, fun-loving locals. From here, you can hop on a ferry to one of the 15 car-free Toronto Islands — an idyllic setting for nature walks, kayaking, or a picnic overlooking Canada’s most dramatic skyline.


Among the skyscrapers you’ll find an extraordinary range of eye-catching museums. Don’t miss the Art Gallery of Ontario, with a curvy extension by Frank Gehry; the Royal Ontario Museum, a striking building that contains Canada’s largest collection of natural history; and the sublime Aga Khan Museum, dedicated to Islamic art.


This cultural diversity is reflected in the city’s colourful communities. Head to Little Jamaica for jerk chicken and dancehall, Little India for saris and samosas, or if you’re feeling home-sick, to Greektown for souvlaki. 


Take your Toronto stay to the next level with a complimentary upgrade at the St Regis. As well as a coveted downtown location, this 65-storey hotel has the most opulent day spa in Toronto, and nannies on call if you’re travelling with kids.
