Yorkville Tours

Yorkville is a very urban and chic neighborhood in Toronto, which, over the past decades, has become a hotspot for first class galleries and elegant designer stores mixed with a young urban crowd and gourmet restaurants. Yorkville wasn’t always so upscale and trendy though. Once only a small residential suburb on the outskirts of Toronto, Yorkville grew into a bohemian culture center in the ‘60s and was even called the hippie capital of Canada. It fostered such well-known artists as Neil Young, Margaret Atwood and Dennis Lee and it was only in the past decades that sky scrapers and department stores popped up, boutiques and galleries moved into residential homes and the neighborhood turned into the high-end shopping district of today. Especially Bloor Street is home to luxury designers such as Tiffany & Co, Chanel, Gucci and Hermès, but many more boutiques can be found throughout the neighborhood.

Yorkville is a dynamic mix of haute couture, fine art, fancy hotels and historic charm and on a walk around the neighborhood you will find small courtyards and alleyways among both modern office towers and old Victorian row houses. Those wanting a rest from shopping and fine dining will find some quiet in the Village of Yorkville Park. The park was designed with Canada’s varied landscape in mind and thus, features a Pine Grove, a Prairie Wildflower Garden containing many flowers and grasses originating in the prairies, the Ontario Marsh and numerous other themed areas.

Practical Info

The district of Yorkville is just north of downtown Toronto. It is bordered in the south by Bloor Street and in the north by Davenport Road and is accessible via the Bloor Station, Bay Station and Rosendale Station subway stops.
