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.

If you want real history, don't go to Casa Loma. Discover the castles of Europe and then you will find out that casa Loma is such a place empty of history. The castle and its surrounding are beautiful but it's not worthy to visit it.

The visit is very interesting for those who enjoy knowing about the history of the country, about how rich people lived at a certain time, about the battles they fought. I recommend.

Set up was well done, some actors were good- especially the blonde bartender. The guy who was Jack Welch was just fair. Surroundings were a little spartan and inside was hot.

It’s a beautiful place. But air conditioning is not a priority. The two towers, the Norman and the Scottish are accessible by steep staircases and I. The last few flights by metal spiral staircases. These are not for the faint of heart or the halt...More

Amazing gardens and city views. Taking you back in time. Make sure you read up on the history of the castle. It will add an informative and interesting back drop to your visit. Nothing else like it in Toronto. Enjoy.

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
