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.

This was a great place to explore if you love historic homes. There’s only an audio tour and I would have loved to ask some follow up questions of a live tour guide. My tip would be to definitely buy tickets ahead of time to...More

What a place - the original owner had more money than he knew what to do with and the legacy is Casa Loma a unique property of incredible luxury for its day. We didn’t pre-book tickets and had to wait about 15mins to get in...More

I'd definitely recommend driving here. Parking is charged at a flat-rate of $10. The line to get tickets is not very long, but we had the Toronto CityPass so we skipped it. There are free audio guides inside which are available in several languages. This...More

Casa Loma is full of tourists, although visiting it is really expensive. It is nice to see how wealthy people lived at the beginning of the 20th century, but nothing else. As I see it, the views over Toronto are the most of the visit...More

We spent a couple of hours at Casa Loma. The grounds are lovely and the opulence of the castle is impressive. We climbed to the top of the tower for great city views. There is no air conditioning in the castle, so dress appropriately if...More

Was nice to see what a man with money did, not only for himself by having that castle build but also for the city. Electricity etc. Great architect to build something so great

Make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to wander through this incredible castle - 4 levels, with lots of hidden staircases and underground tunnels. Closes at 5pm on the dot. This is an incredible building for its age and to be able to wander...More

A large but rather ordinary Edwardian Country house. If this were in Europe no one would think of calling it a tourist attraction. Also disabled access was not good. The paths around the property were uneven and on the day we went the elevator was...More

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
