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.

Wonderful building, interesting exposition. Terrible ventilation, too hot and humid in summer. Very expensive parking, but one may park for $5 just 10 min walk away, at the public parking near the George Brown College.

Casa Loma is a historical building in the manner of "robber baron" opulence. The location provides great views as well. I often visited with my young children (4-8 years old) because it recalled tales of old castles and towers for them. The climb to the...More

For an awesome experience in Toronto combine a visit to Casa Loma with High Tea. Entry is included in the price for the High Tea. Its a really special experience and provides a glimpse of what it was like to live there.

You can purchase on the day of the visit, although if you purchase in advance it would save you time

I would say 2 to 3 hours is a nice leisurely pace. They have a restaurant down stairs to take a break, as well as a small theater that shows a clip about the history of the castle where y o u can also sit.
