Description

Truly a Toronto monument, this Via Rail/GO train/subway station, which stretches along a block of Front Street, was opened in 1927 by the Prince of Wales. Classically designed, there are elements of simplicity mixed with grandeur in the architecture of this 750-foot long hall. While strolling along the concourse, you will see arched windows, enormous pillars and Italian tile gracing the high ceilings. The station serves as the U-joint in the Toronto Transit Commission's Yonge subway line, as well as a terminal for GO Transit, Via Rail and Ontario Northland railroad.
