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.

Almost like stepping back in time. Fun to climb to the top of the towers, explore the gardens and tunnel.

The pool in basement was turned into a movie theatre, and they added a good court and displays of movies that were filmed there. Very exciting. Food is typical junk food (pizza, hit dogs, etc.) If you want healthy food I recommend bringing it. A...More

30 CAD for an museum that seems to be Toronto's number one tourust trap. This place did not even as much have a welcome brochure. Asking the staff any questions also proved that it was really just an old huge mansion on the hill that...More

A castle in the middle of the city! You can walk around to see all the rooms and architecture but the best way is to get one of the free audio guides to listen to the detailed explanation of the rooms, purpose and architecture. Take...More

The grandeur is charming. It showcases a lot of ancient ways and means that we have taken for granted now. Many places like the a parlour or a separate bedroom which existed in 1800s is now a ridiculous idea for regular people. Nevertheless the view...More

It is a beautiful structure from the outside and makes an impressive sight in the neighborhood. The inside layout seems ill conceived and non functional for the original purpose. The interior design leaves much to he desired, but the garden room is beautiful. The staff...More

Nice castle to explore, especially if you are a movies fan. Nice place to go in the winter. They don't have Portuguese audio guide.

This was my first Escape Room experience. It's really fun. Be forewarned that to succeed (escape), you need to bring your brain and think laterally. It was well organized and the actors that keep the theme alive were just helpful enough with their hints.

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

I would say 2 to 3 hours is a nice leisurely pace. They have a restaurant down stairs to take a break, as well as a small theater that shows a clip about the history of the castle where y o u can also sit.
