This enclosed pedestrian bridge near the intersection of Yonge and Queen connects the Eaton Centre to the historic Hudson’s Bay building. It has an incredibly interesting design where, if you angle your camera right, it will give you a cool spiral effect.

Built in 1994 as part of the Martin Goodman Trail, the Humber River bridge is great for capturing the landscape while taking a walk or riding your bike across it. Its towering arches and waterfront views make for a great photo too.

Centre Island Bridge

If you find yourself on the Toronto Islands, this historical bridge is worth a look. It dates back to the 1800’s and although it’s undergone some alterations over the years, it still maintains its original style.

Not only does the Garrison Crossing bridge make it easy to get between King West and Fort York, but it also has an innovative a-symmetrical leaning design. It was just completed in 2019, so it’s a relatively new addition to the city.

The Queen Street Viaduct, which dates back to 1911, may have been built for the practical purpose of carrying cars and street cars across the Don River, but it has the added bonus of looking really cool too. The clock and script, which reads “this river I step in is not the river I stand in,” were added in 2010.

Wallace Avenue Footbridge

If you’re looking for a bridge to take photos on that has a bit more of an industrial feel, the Wallace Avenue Footbridge is the place to do it. The bridge, which dates back to 1907, is located north east of High Park, at the intersection of Wallace and Dundas.

Sat over the Humber River, just north of Bloor Street West, this stone bridge was built in 1916 and certainly still has a quaint, historic feel to it.
