Overview

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.

The house is beautiful. But the story behind its fall is so sad. Anyway, this is a great visit for people coming here in Toronto. A lot of beautiful well kept items from the family. A great place to have you wedding photo done too....More

Touristy but an excellent place to see on not so sunny days. We loved the architecture with its wood panels in the rooms and halls plus the antique furnishings and the view of Toronto is great.

We visited this old 20th Century Gothic Style Castle. Was originally owned by Henry Mill Pellat who was known for brining Hydroelectric Power to Toronto. Now this 98 room mansion acts as a museum and well worth a visit when you are in Toronto.

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

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.
