We think in Canadian dollars, not GBP ... so your budget would be about $1100 for 7 nights - or $150-$160 a night.

You'll want to be in the downtown core. You can check for Toronto hotels here on TA by clicking on the green tab at top of page, then filtering the results by location and price.

Your itinerary seems rather light ... it will not take an entire day to see the St. Lawrence market, or the CN Tower. Not sure what you mean by Dundas.

Tell us what you're interested in ... easier to make suggestions.

Dundas square(eaton shopping mall).

Maybe watching a game of baseball at the roger centre.

Apart from the what's listed above any suggestion to get the full experience of Toronto?

Maybe going to a bar one evening and watching a Hockey game as well where is the best place to do that for the atmosphere and food.

If the market doesn't take the full day to visit what else could we do around there for the rest of the day?

Any suggestion ?

We do enjoy walking , visiting new places , learning about the cities we travel to , does there is a tourist bus tour in the city like in London and New York with a guide.

Any day tour you would suggest ?Ottawa etc...?

Thanks

There are many many resources available to plan your days - I suggest you take a look at some of them:

http://www.torontolife.com/

www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly…

http://www.toronto.com/

Also - to the right of the page - Top Questions about Toronto, and at top of page - green tabs - Things to do.

There are walking tours of all sorts, parks, history, museums, galleries, theatre, etc.

The regular hockey season will be over in May.

Ottawa is a 5 hour journey one way from Toronto .... not appropriate for a day tour. Day trip s are better done in a rental vehicle. If that's an option you want to explore, please advise.

You ask about what to do around the St. Lawrence Market................... walking distance of each other, among other things, are the CN Tower, the Ripley's Aquarium, the Hockey Hall of Fame and the St. Lawrence Market.................in the general vicinity of the St. Lawrence Market you have numerous bars/pubs and restaurants, both on Front St, and behind it on The Esplanade......you could even walk to the Eaton Centre/Dundas Square from the SLM, if you wanted to, via Yonge Street ...............

Hi, we don't recall from your previous posts whether or not you like museums, but in the Bloor-Yorkville area are the Royal Ontario Museum, the Bata Shoe Museum, and the Gardiner Museum which is devoted to ceramics. The area also hosts the University of Toronto with pretty quadrangles and old buildings, and the high-end shopping area from which the district gets it's name.

In the area of Chinatown and Kensington Market is the Art Gallery of Ontario.

A streetcar (tram) ride to The Beach neighbourhood makes for a good day. There is a lovely boardwalk along Lake Ontario with the wonderful R. Harris Water Filtration plant at its eastern end (a monumental depression-era civic construction) from which you can loop back to the western edge of the neighbourhood along Queen Street East. Mid way between downtown and The Beach lies the neighbourhood of Leslieville which has interesting shops & cafés along Queen Street.

Another great day outing could be had by taking the Queen Street streetcar, this time to the west of downtown, to the neighbourhood of Parkdale and walking back. This stretch of Queen Street is lined with interesting shops and galleries and there are hundreds of places to stop for a rest and refreshment.

Other neighbourhoods worth investigating are Greektown (The Danforth), College Street (Little Italy, although it's much more than just Italian these days), Little India, The Annex & Koreatown on Bloor St. West, etc.

Try Novotel Toronto Centre. It's in a good location for your interests, is in your price range (for the random dates in May I plugged in) and gets good reviews.

Also you might want to check out the Historical Distillery District. It is a lovely area of the city and a nice way to spend a few hours. You can read up on it from the below links to see if it would interest you.

Real Sports Bar would be excellent for a playoff hockey game, hopefully one that will include the Leafs!
