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 casa Loma is a historical place. I was exposed to some historical lesson while in the castle. I saw first hand in close some ancient and historical things that amazed me. It is a good place for people who has great interest in learning the culture and history of Toronto to a certain degree. It is a nice place... More

This is an easy and fascinating way to occupy a whole afternoon. The place is filled with interesting history that spans over a century. It's also filled with a few quirky eccentricities too. I mean I can understand Sir Henry Pellatt having a tigerskin rug in his bedroom, I mean that's a classic 19th century old rich dude furnishing staple.... More

Although I had been to Toronto on many occasions, I never had the opportunity to visit Casa Loma. This time around, i made it a point to visit the so talked about attraction. From the inception, it was a great experience. I visited with my three little girls and they were really entertained seeing the exhibits. We went through the... More

I am glad I had the opportunity to see this castle while on my buisness trip to Toronto. The history of the family and the castle itself was very interesting. Enjoyed exploring the seven floors in the house as well as the underground tunnel across the street to the stables. It was quite fun roaming though the secret passages as... More

I've lived in Toronto for 30 years and have always wanted to visit Casa Loma as I've heard so much about it. Well, I finally did last weekend and ....WOW!! I was not disappointed. A great espape for a drizzly Autumn day. Casa Loma was actually bigger and more spacious than I expected. My husband and I spent 3 hours... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
