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 fell in love with the casa's architecture and even more, the pieces of history that is within it's walls. We also watched the short film on the life the castle's owner, Sir Henry Pellatt and his wife, Lady Mary. I think of his love for his wife how it is an everlasting love.

We are talking about a great place and a great location. With $75 you could get the Mother's Day Brunch and a visit included. With a family party of 12 we got there at 1:30pm. We paid the $10 fee for parking and headed to the Brunch area. You won't believe the incredible number of people, just to get to... More

My beautiful daughter booked us for a Mother's Day Brunch this past Sunday. I cannot believe the most beautiful setting ...at the Casa Loma castle. There were cascades of flowers and white linen and silver and waiters moving about and then a giant display of shrimp caught my eye..and so on. The settings of tables within the library and conservatory... More

I took a coach bus to Casa Loma which is a beautiful castle and grounds. I felt someone could have stepped on the bus to give a "guiding" speech - it would have helped our group since there are free head sets to listen to while walking and they are downstairs which no one told us - and maps to...

From the outside Casa Loma is impressive. It's even more so inside. It's easy to access either by car (there is plenty of on-site parking for a flat $10 fee) or by public transport ( the DuPont St TTC station is a 5-10 minute away). Entry is $25 per adult but this gives you access to the entire mansion and... More

This is a mansion on the hill, based on the European chateaus. I doubt we would had come here if we did not have a multi museum ticket. I was surprised to see how busy it was, a lot of the rooms did remind me of castles we have visited elsewhere. We could walk though some passages to stables, see... More

Henry eventually joined his father’s very successful brokerage firm where he was to become one of the young nation’s most successful businessmen. In an effort to outshine his fellow millionaires Sir Henry (his... More

This is my second time to Toronto and this is a must see. This is a great historical building. There are so many rooms to visit. They keep it clean.

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.
