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.

The Casa Loma is absolutely gorgeous and well worth a visit for all those visiting Toronto for business or pleasure. Casa Loma was once Sir Henry Mill Pellatt's home and his story itself is amazing. Built back in 1911 it has 98 rooms for you...More

I have been to Casa Loma more times than I can count. I first went as a school trip in elementary school. I love going there in the spring when the gardens are in full bloom. The castle is very large and beautiful. It's weird...More

This "castle" was only built in the early 1900s, so it's a bit of a fake. It's the former home of Canadian financier Sir Henry Pellatt, who clearly had money to burn. This is claimed to be Canada's foremost castle - well, they don't have...More

A great place to visit to learn about its history. We loved the Secret Garden and the short video that presented the palace history.

Had no idea Casa Loma was so interesting and historical...right in the heart of Toronto! The grounds take you to another time period, and you quickly forget about the fact you're in a major metropolis. The staff and curator of this establishment should be commended,...More

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

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