The CN Tower


Every city has its iconic monument, building or structure.

The Eiffel Tower.

The London Eye.

The Empire State Building.

In Toronto there are many beautiful buildings, but none are more iconic and recognisable than the CN Tower. So when we visited a few months ago, of course  we had to visit. After buying our tickets and a wait of about thirty minutes we were soon speeding up the tower, whizzing upwards as we looked out of the glass elevator at the city skyline.

Once there we were treated to gorgeous views of the city, the islands, Lake Ontario and beyond. At a height of 346/351 metres (or even higher if you venture up to the Skypod) you can see a long, long way!




It was fun to look down on the Toronto Islands where we'd spent most of the day exploring! The boats and planes looked tiny as the ferried people to and fro.


Matthew was very brave and went to take a snap through the glass floor. It is a long way down!


Meanwhile I took some snaps of the city and suburbs as they basked in the late afternoon sunshine.



It's always a little odd to see such huge buildings from above!




The sun was starting to go down over Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington in the far distance as we took in the views and enjoyed a glass of wine and a Canadian beer. Then we headed off to meet friends for steak and wine - holiday mode is such a joy, no?

The CN Tower was a definite highlight of our trip, as well as a constant sight during our time in Toronto. Not least because when you sat on the windowseat of our hotel room at the Intercontinental, the view was this:


Way to be, CN Tower!

  2. Oh, I loved my trip to Toronto when I went years ago and would so love to visit again. I enjoyed the CN Tower and stood at the edge of the glass to take a photo down! :D We went in mid winter, so there was plenty of snow about.

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
