Thank you so much to Hart House! It was a gorgeous wedding! Everything went well and we enjoyed ourselves! The food, equipment, support staff, were great. We have no complaints at all. Beautiful !
Hart House is a beautiful building with 100 years of history since its construction in 1919 and has Ontario Heritage status. It has an mazing courtyard and impressive large rooms. Many special events such as meetings, weddings, and conferences are held here. Hart House also has a quaint restarant called the Gallery Grill, which is open to the public. The building houses a barber shop, radio stations, a gym, and a swimming pool. Guided tours are offered and available to the public.
Cool and well maintained building. Has a medieval feeling to it but can host small gatherings and meetings. Best of it all, it's on University of Toronto St George campus
Hart House delivers on a stellar Craft Beer Festival. Awesome selection, great food and good mix of options. Definitely enjoyed the visit .
The fitness centre has a beautiful swimming pool... And many lockers in the change room. There are two weight training areas, on two separate floors. One was relatively small and the other in an open area surrounded by the running track.Admission/use of the gym is free for UofT students, but towels are not included. Each towel is $1 for rental.
Hart House is aptly named as its brilliant castle walls have played host to thousands of beautiful love stories.
Easily it is one of our favourite places we have had the privilege of performing at over the years (in no small part because of the full-sized grand pianos that are always in perfect tune.)
Its continued popularity is no secret with the enchanting architecture and warm atmosphere enhanced by their incredibly helpful and friendly sales team. Love is always in the air at Hart House *****
We have booked bands for clients at this very classy venue and love it!
I photographed a wedding at Hart House in 2003 and I loved the venue so much that I decided to have my own wedding there in 2005. They were excellent to work with as a photographer and of course, I got amazing treatment as a bride. I had a winter wedding and this venue was absolutely perfect with it's cozy fireplace, gothic architecture and high ceilings. We also had a lot of music at our wedding and the acoustics were fantastic. It probably helped that a piano tuner came in before the music began. Even though my wedding took place in February, we still managed to get photos outdoors!
The wedding I photographed in 2003 took place in the summer and they made use of the courtyard as well as The Great Hall.
In 2015, I photographed another wedding in the smaller music room there. That was also the perfect place for a ceremony and the grounds of Hart House are one of my favourite places to photograph people in all of Toronto.
Hart House holds a special place in my heart as I spent a lot of time there during my University days at U of T. When Sarah & Nick asked me to plan their wedding at Hart House, I was very excited about the opportunity. The venue was very special to them as well, as they had met their while attending U of T. From start to finish the staff at Hart House was welcoming and professional making it a pleasure to work with them. If you are looking for a unique and stunning historic space to host your wedding - and one that offers an outdoor garden space with magnificent architecture and charm (something which is hard to find in downtown Toronto) - you should definitely consider Hart House.
