As the name ‘un-subtly’ implies, Graffiti Alley is an alley in downtown Toronto filled with graffiti. However, unlike those splashed in other areas across the town, these wall paintings are some of the most interesting artworks you will see in Toronto. Already notable as one of Toronto’s most iconic tourist stops, Graffiti valley offers enough visual intrigue to keep visitors entertained while strolling for an hour. Worth mentioning that the art displayed in the alleyway constantly changes, so this makes it more exciting as you get to see different things.

How to get there
You can get there by bus or car.
Who should visit
Art lovers – street art to be precise, picture lovers or if you need a pop of color in your life.
What to expect
An alley with lots of street art and graffiti. Don’t forget, It’s just an alley, so it’s surroundings aren’t exactly aesthetically pleasing. Depending on the time of the year, it might be a bit crowded. It is surrounded by lots of shops and cafes so you can easily grab lunch afterwards or go shopping.
When to visit
I will recommend visiting in the daytime – you don’t want to be walking down an alley when it’s dark, plus the art is clearer with sunshine anyways. Visit preferably first thing in the morning to avoid crowds.
Bring a camera and wear white – perfect blend with the pop of colours. You’ll take lots of pictures
