Distillery District Walking Tour

Where: Toronto, Ontario
Price for: 1 Participant
Distillery District Walking Tour: Once the largest distillery in the British Empire, G&W has the largest collection of industrial Victorian buildings in Canada. You will see where Toronto’s tallest structure once stood and where many Hollywood movies were shot. Visit Mill Street, the area’s first brewery to open in 100 years.

The focus is on the history of the Distillery District from its foundation in 1832 to present day. You’ll strike out on foot with a talented, knowledgeable guide and spend an hour being enthralled by tales of business intrigue, an intoxicated city and an alcohol company that, before it was shuttered in 1990, had become the largest on Earth.

On this Toronto Distillery walking tour, you’ll learn about the largest collection of Victorian Industrial architecture standing in North America and how they helped put Canada and Toronto on the map as industrial giants in the new world. 

To add a modern interlude to the tour that will quench your thirst and excite your tongue you will stop for visits at Mill St. Brewery and Soma Chocolate for tastings during an explanation of the current Distillery District’s rise to international acclaim.

The Distillery features more than 70 ground-floor cultural and retail establishments in the restored red brick, Victorian-era buildings of the renowned Gooderham & Worts whiskey distillery. As one of Canada’s hottest tourist attractions, just a short walk from downtown Toronto, there is always something happening at The Distillery.
