"Transit Buffs" Union Station Tip by mikey_e
Union Station, Toronto: 10 reviews and 13 photos
Union Station doubles as both the southern terminus of the TTC's subway system and as the main station for Toronto for VIA. If you come to Toronto on a train from Montreal, Ottawa or the US, you'll arrive here in the slightly depressing lower-level of the station. The exterior of Union Station is quite impressive, with its Neo-Classical columns and its placement among the equally imposing structures of Front Street. The Station was inaugurated in 1927 and is today a National Heritage Landmark. It was meant to be a piece in the build-up of the Canadian railway system, which was partly monopolized after the initial appearance of several smaller railway companies in the 19th century.
Right now there is a bit of construction on the entrance, but you can still get an idea of the grandeur if you side-step it. There aren't many restaurants inside, and those that are reasonably priced are generally fastfood joints, so fill up elsewhere before you get here.
Address: Front Street
Directions: Union subway stop
