Toronto is one of the most popular cities on the planet, reeling in over 40 million visitors a year. So it’s no surprise that it’s also the biggest city in Canada, sprawling out on the shore of Lake Ontario in a series of character-packed neighbourhoods. Record-breaking skyscrapers, grand museums, festivals, miles-long shopping streets, holiday islands – it’s got them all. And it’s all within day-tripping distance of Niagara Falls.

It’s easy to see why Toronto is often mistaken for the capital of Canada. This huge city is home to the sky-scraping CN Tower, bustling Queen Street West, and enough theatres to put the West End to shame. The red-brick Royal Ontario Museum lays out the history of the province, while the Hockey Hall of Fame is a shrine to Canada’s favourite sport. There’s a year-long calendar of events, too.
And unlike London, Toronto changes with the seasons, serving up a snowy winter, sunny spring and hot summer. Autumn is the one to really watch out for, though – the local maple trees turn bright yellow, orange and red.
