If you thought you’ve seen all the tourist sites in Toronto, better check out the village of Islington. Wherein you can enjoy murals, access free, 24 hours and outdoors! I’ve seen a lot of murals too on Québec but not like Islington which are close to each other. You can tour as a group but we prefer to be on our own. Literally on our own, because we’re the only one exploring the murals during that time haha.

Our way to Islington hasn’t been easy. Since it’s our first to get here and we knew nobody who lives near this village. TIP: ask for directions! Canadians are very approachable. Asking directions will get you a long way.

From Scarborough, we rode a train, 2 buses and got lost haha. We took almost 15 minutes to walk to reach Dundas street. As what I said, ask directions.



As we reached the village, the neighborhood is full of shops, restaurants etc. And of course, what we really went for – murals!

If I’m not mistaken, there are 23 murals along the village. Each with a specific plaque describing the mural art. I think we’re not half of what we’ve seen tho.
