Place: Scarborough Canada - The Guild

Month Viewed: 11 | Total Viewed: 2761 |

My visit to the Guild was on a sunny, breezy afternoon.  Going there not knowing what to expect, it was full of pleasant surprises.  We first read about this place on a newspaper article posted at a burger place, naming it one of the “Seven Wonders of Scarborough.”  There’s definitely no doubt about that. It was originally a private residence, converted into a hotel, namely The Guild Inn, looking out to a huge garden and acres of forest.  Now the hotel has been abandoned for years and fenced in, but the garden has been used for a different purpose. Laid across different parts of the huge garden are fragments of architectural structures that existed mainly in downtown Toronto throughout the 1800s and the 1900s; maybe pieces of the old BMO building, the home of the scientist that discovered insulin, or the U of T medical building, and much more. Seeing and touching these pieces of preserved art and reading the descriptions on them made me feel like I was walking in the 19th and early 20th centuries.  It was amazing. Most descriptions were as specific as to naming the building, the specific intersection and the specific corner of that intersection. The Guild has been known to be a destination for bridal photos and even outdoor wedding ceremonies. Walking right through the garden, we saw Lake Ontario. The Guild and its woodlands lie along the edge of the lake on a cliff. We took a long walk in the woods, enjoying the breathtaking view of the seemingly endless water, and looking down from above to the shoreline. It was a truly incredible place to be.
