About
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.

We did not go into the castle as we were limited on our time, but we took photos from outside and found the castle to be magnificent. The architecture is breathtaking. Visiting the castle, even just from the outside, is certainly a worthwhile trip.

Was a lot more interesting than I imagined. It’s not often I stop and read all the signs . It’s beautiful with a lot of history as well, and great views.

Worth the trip on the metro. The life size waxworks were a surprise but a very pleasant way to spend a few hours and the views are spectacular

Had never heard of this place, but it was fantastic to visit, even with kids and the Blue Blood restaurant in one wing was great too

Legends of horror at Casa Loma . “Family friendly “ hours are NOT family friendly at all. My son was in tears the whole 10 min he lasted . He’s a brave guy that loves all things spooky and halloween and he was terrified . Asked them for a partial refund /credit because $100 is a lot for 10min not to mention false advertising on the family friendly hours and was told no refunds or exchanges . Maybe market your service differently then . And I wouldn’t be labelling it family friendly . Disappointed , would not recommend , over crowded, over priced and worst customer service .

We stayed one night in downtown Toronto and used the City pass my wife bought @ about $84/ each to get up the CN Tower and Aquarium yesterday and the Casa Loma today. The adult entry into Casa Loma was apparently $40 so the city Pass was a great deal for us.

We took the subway to Casa Loma and back for $6.50 each roundtrip ticket.

I attached several pictures outside and of rooms inside below.

We were able to walk through and read descriptions of just about every room, including up both towers.

The architecture is beautiful throughout. It very much feels like a castle built for royalty. There is plenty of information provided in each room to explain the history of the room itself and additional information about the family. A great visit for history and/or architecture fanatics.

This is a cool experience for a group of adults, esp. if you don’t book the so called family-friendly version. I think you can have a really good time… that being said: We did buy tickets for the “family-friendly” time slot… my 6-year-old loves Halloween. She is not the anxious type, usually very bold, etc. … She was crying in terror :( it was a real horror show for me! I have never seen her so terrified. I felt so bad having brought her here. I has to escort her through the entire show with my arms over her ears and eyes. Just giving a recommendation here, but stay away with kids under 12, it is really not suitable.
