Stroll through the village of Yorkville and enjoy some of the best preserved Victorian homes in the city. Located north of Bloor Street between Yonge Street and Avenue Road, it is considered to be the centre of Canada’s business, entertainment and high style industries. This is Toronto’s most elegant and vibrant urban area, offering unparalleled shopping, dining, entertainment, and lifestyle amenities. The Yorkville neighbourhood is the most international in Canada.

The Victorian houses of Yorkville Avenue, Cumberland Street and Hazelton Avenue host wonderfully eclectic shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants. Bloor Street is lined with world class prestige fashion houses including Gucci, Versace and Chanel.

The shops and restaurants are an irresistible draw for visiting celebrities and famous personalities are often seen in the nightclubs and eateries.

The neighbourhood is surrounded by a plethora of cultural, educational and recreational resources. The Royal Ontario Museum, the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, the Bata Shoe Museum, the University of Toronto and the Metro Reference Library are all just a few minutes’ walk away.

Movie buffs will love the Cumberland Cinema and the recently refurbished Varsity Theatre. Ramsden Park, which runs from Yonge Street to Avenue Road, has tennis courts, a skating rink and a playground.

Yorkville is located in the heart of the city, so both the Bloor-Danforth and Yonge-University-Spadina subway lines are within easy walking distance. The Don Valley Parkway is a five-minute drive away.
