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.

Takes you back to the Elizabethan era of aristocracy and gives the feeling of what it must have been like to live as a noble in a grand European castle. Beautiful presentation and wonderfully period-correct. Really awesome feeling of letting the imagination roam from room to room to include high class, horror, fashion, opulent luxury and more.

Casa Loma was one of my favorite field trips when I was in grade school, and I was excited to return with my own children. It was a nice place to go after a formal afternoon event. It's a little pricey, but not out of line with other Toronto attractions and we were able to take advantage of a AAA... More

This reminded me of a smaller Biltmore Estate. It was beautiful. The gardens were very nice. It is only a few blocks from the subway. There are lots of stairs. We had a great time.

Not too far from downtown hotels but need a car to get there. This restored old Palace is very interesting with various rooms and levels and takes you back to a grander time in the history of this magnificent city. Allow yourself a couple of hours to see every room and every detail of this place including the dinning hall... More

For sure is one of the best sights in Toronto. A beautiful authentic royal castle with nice gardens. Almost everything in the castle is open for visitors, the entrance fee includes audio guide with a lot of information for every part of the castle.

A must visit. Allow over 3 hours to visit this very interesting castle. Summer would be best to really enjoy the gardens. Great views of Toronto from the towers. Check out the tunnel as well as various rooms.

There is not really much to this place which is a poor comparison to a true castle. Better to go when they have a live musical performance or movie screening.

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.
