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.

If you plan to visit Casa Loma it would be better to do in summer or spring. The gardens there are really sharming, you'll have a nice walk outdoor. But the castle itself is nothing special at all. It is a monument to a human...More

One of the few attractions in Toronto which celebrates the past. The audio guide is very good, and it's worth taking your time to wander about the place. I did the tour with the audio, and then went back to look again and take photographs....More

This place is well worth a view with the family. Amazing venue, with a slightly set design feel to it. Very family friendly. Bring a packed lunch and enjoy it in the garden on the grounds.

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

Parking is available right on site for a flat fee. It is a very short walk to the main door.
