Overview
More
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.

Decided to go & see the castle/house whilst in Toronto on holiday. The outside of the house is beautiful as are the gardens. Inside it isn't as grand & unsure exactly what they were trying to exhibit. There are lots of different, interesting things but...More

I went there with a friend and found this place has nothing special to justify $30/person spent. Tons of people, over crowded. Waste our time and money here.

This building is more than 150 years old and it is worth to pay a visit during the day and take photos, or visit it at summer nights for concert and music. They have also events for Halloween as a haunted house. Don't miss it.

While not spectacular, this is a pretty venue to see. Challenging if you are not able to walk well or do stairs easily. Many interesting historical pieces and art installed including the Maple Leaf Gardens organ and works by the Group of Seven. Beautiful gardens...More

Yes it is touristy but it also is a very good example of a 20th century castle. Great place for weddings, photographers or architect buffs. There are also some hidden treasures and some wonderful places just to relax and enjoy the grounds and the views....More

Despite arriving thirty minutes early (on June 13th) we could not find anywhere to sit. We inquired about the cafe tables with seating for four but occupied by mostly couples.Those empty seats were not available to us; we finally settled on a patio seat found...More

I went on a Friday morning (was already fairly crowded, but not badly so). Really enjoyed my visit - I stayed for about 2 hours. You need at least a good hour or two to be able to see everything. In my opinion it's worth...More

If you've been to many National Trust properties in UK, this rates as a fairly average example. Enjoyable to look round, but nothing special. Most interesting is the tunnel between two parts of the house, built because someone decided to put a road through the...More

The guy who built this was obviously very rich, not afraid to show it and probably a half bubble off of plumb. From the underground tunnels between buildings, hidden passageways turrets for defense and other interesting details, Casa Loma is an interesting look into the...More

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

Parking is available right on site for a flat fee. It is a very short walk to the main door.
