Once we meet up in downtown Toronto, we leave Union Station walking up York St. to Wellington, go east on Wellington to Bay St. and take Bay to Queen St.
From there we walk west on Queen St. walking past Nathan Philips Square and cutting through the Law Society of Upper Canada’s grounds to University, from there we go North to Dundas and then west on Dundas to McCaul, we then go north then west a bit by walking along Baldwin then north on Henry St. then across to Beverly St. (which runs into St. George) From there we turn north again to College and then east to King’s College Circle to the St. George Campus of University of Toronto and we go north, past University College and the residences. Then we go west along Harbord St. to St. George, we go north again past Robarts Library (the Bunker) and cut over to Huron St., we go North on Huron to the BP Nicholson Lane and we then go south back Huron past Coach House Press. We then go back east to St. George and walk North to Bloor St. and walk East along Bloor to Avenue Rd. We go North one block to Prince Arthur and west until we reach our destination: The Duke of York Pub.
For those who might find the walk strenuous, you have the option of hopping on the TTC we are in close proximity of the Yonge/ University Subway Line and the Spadina LRT Line. Note the closest subway station to the Duke of York is at St. George.
What do you need:
Comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking involved. Money for the subway/LRT in Toronto, cash fare is $3. Note while in early September it still feels like Summer during the day, it can cool down at night, dress accordingly.
In terms of camera gear, lean towards packing light and reasonably inconspicuous, restrict yourself to normal to wide angle lenses.
