“Lovely Campus”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Was nice to get away from the noise/craziness of Ste Catharine Street for a bit of solitude and walk around the McGill campus.

“A Nice Walkaround”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We didn't spend a lot of time here, but we wanted to see it because we have friends who have gone to school there, and it is a part of the English history of Montreal, too. We walked around on our way to Mont Royal, which is very nearby. Do both.

“One of the most beautiful campus' I have ever walked through”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The old architecture of the campus draws me in, time and time again. The buildings are absolutely beautiful and is a great slice of the old and the new.

The football stadium has a great tribute area, detailing the history of the various patrons, sponsors and teams that have play there over the year.

Worth taking a walk if only once to marvel in the antiquity!

“American styled campus right downtown”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

I like the atmosphere or american campus but they are often on the outskirts of major towns. Here it is a constellation of old buildings all the way up to "Mont Royal" hill and down to the business district and "McGill ghetto" a charming old colonial district that hosts many students. Close to Ste Catherine, many shops and restaurants around
