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.

Don't miss this gilded age fever dream. This castle is huge and goes on forever. You can climb up the towers, venture through underground tunnels, go through secret passages! I spent hours wandering around. Lots of fun!

Full disclosure - I read about this place and wanted very badly to enjoy this tour. The idea of some nut-job building a "castle" in the 20th century was intriguing. In some ways the tour WAS good. The self guided nature of it was okay....More

The castle is impressive from the outside. But once you enter, you see that the interior is not as grand as other mansions that you can tour. There were 100s of tourists lined up outside and quadruple that inside the home. It was hard to...More

I didn't go inside of the castle but the whole area was just beautiful. Spadina House across the street from Casa Loma was interesting and so welcoming. On my next visit, I will definitely go inside the castle.

Casa Loma can be reached by subway exit at Dupont and then a walk following signs (which provide good directions all the way from the subway to the castle). It was great to see a piece of Toronto history and architecture. I liked that they...More

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its

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
