Canada's majestic castle and Toronto’s premier historic attraction.

In 1911, Sir Henry Pellatt engaged noted architect

E.J. Lennox to help him realize a lifelong dream,the

creation of an Edwardian castle on the top of a hill

overlooking Toronto. It took 300 men nearly three

years to complete the nearly to 200,000 square foot

castle at a cost $3,500,000 (at the time). Situated on

5 acres, Casa Loma was the largest private residence in

Canada. Sir Henry Pellatt with his wife Lady Mary enjoyed

Casa Loma for less than ten years before financial

misfortune forced him to abandon his home.

The tour of the castle is self-guided. Visitors can

experience the castle at their leisure with the aid of

multimedia audio guides.

What an amazing folly to have been built. Sitting a top the only discernable rise on an otherwise flat Toronto this mansion is unmissable. The entrance fee at $25 is a bit steep but the place is so fascinating it's worth it. Plan on spending at 3 hours to listen to the full audio tour and enjoy all of the... More

We have visited in Summertime but stopped in again January 2nd to see the Christmas displays highlighted by the Decorator Christmas Trees. Other than the trees, of which Colin and Justin's was the focal point, the sparse decorations throughout were all the same such as on all fireplace mantels. Very disappointing for the price of admission. Even more disappointing was... More

We made the unfortunate mistake of visiting during Family day weekend and Beauty and the Beast frenzy. WOW at least 2,000 small children and parents all viing for photos with the characters. No tour guides to help with questions or to point out features.But the place is beautiful just the same.

It is nice place to visit with a good service, even our friend had a welding party here. You can learn a lot about Canadian history.

Haven't been here since I was 15, decided to go back with friends this week and had a fantastic time. It's just like I remembered 35 years ago only I appreciated it much more. Just as cool and just as fun.

I wouldn't have even given this 1 star, but I had to! We visited for B&B exhibit on our very last day of our vacation from the UK. We were greeted with lines upon lines of people who had also prebooked tickets, but we're told that timings were valid and anyone could enter anytime. It was the busiest place I... More

This exhibit was absolutely fantastic. Being able to see costumes from the new movie in such a perfect setting was priceless. It did feel like we were at the Beast's castle. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

This review has little to do with casa Loma itself, the place is beautiful and we've visited many times. This experience was less than satisfactory. Let's first start with the planning, the venue saw a cash grab with this exhibit and poorly git it in motion. We had reserved tickets for 4pm on Sunday. We were in a huge line... More

We went here on family day with our 3 year old to enjoy the Beauty and the Beast exhibit. I had purchased tickets for 11am over a week earlier. When we got there, the parking lot was closed due to being full and we got stuck in bumper to bumper traffic trying to find somewhere to park. We eventually did... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
