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.

This may be the biggest house in Toronto but it is not a grand house. This is a typical start of the century overspent too big and not very fine. The best feature is the wood work and some plaster work. Of course, all the...More

The best way to reach the place would be taking the subway instead of a bus. We walked for more than an hour due to wrong navigation - thanks to Google. The royal castle is grand and is very crowded. If you know Canadian history...More

We visited the castle on a nice weekend day, and it was pretty crowded. Parking was still available though, for a flat fee. We had to wait in line for perhaps 15 minutes to get in, so not too bad. Inside there are many sights...More

Beautiful site and grounds. It's more if of a sight rather than actual entertainment. Be sure to climb up the tower for fora nice shot of the city.

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
