Long Description:
The Guild Inn was once a grand hotel and arts centre. The Inn closed in 2001 and has been fenced off from the public. The grounds are located in Guildwood Park, which is the heart of the Guildwood Village neighbourhood in Scarborough (now part of Toronto).

What makes this place unique is the sculpture garden between the Inn structure and the bluffs overlooking Lake Ontario. The grounds feature sculptures and building facades that were relocated to the property over the years. The park is a favourite among area photographers and is particularly popular for summer wedding photos.

There are many columns and archways here, and the park is famous for it's greek influenced displays. Several movies have been filmed here, the most well known being "The Skulls".

After years of neglect, and facing a demolition order, the property was bought in 2013 by Dynamic Hospitality. The property underwent a major rebuild and restoration. The grounds were spruced up and maintained, and the preserved architectural pieces and sculptures given a make-over. Finally, in May 2017, the Guild Inn Estates opened its doors. Today it stands as one of Toronto's premier event and wedding reception centres, with upwards off 200 per year.
