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 architecture, the views, and the extravagance all make this a place worth visiting. I'd recommending getting tickets beforehand to skip the long lines (look into the toronto city pass and see if that works for you). We were in a bit of a rush...More

Unbelievable experience. If you're in Toronto you have got to see this place. With 98 rooms three stories plus a full basement, and a tunnel going over to the carriage house.

Casa Loma has an interesting history and is worth the visit. Admission includes access to the house, stables, and an audio tour. There is also a movie that describes the property and its colorful owner.

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.
