I had a great day with my friends at Casa Loma. Every turn around the corner is another amazing view for a picture.

You can comfortably see this stately home in half a day. It is an impressive building from the outside and that is echoed inside, particularly the conservatory and the bedroom areas. The history of the place is brought to life with the excellent self guided audio tour. The cafe is reasonably priced and has a decent selection. There is a... More

It was magnificent! The castle is kept in pristine condition, and the details, ornaments, furniture, gardens, and architecture of the place is marvelous. There are phone-like devices you can borrow for free in the gift shop. These devices give you a self-guided tour around the place. It comes in many languages: English, French, Chinese, etc. Seniors and youth are charged... More

Just Average, looks good from the outside. Not too interesting inside. The long tunnel to the stable was long, dirty and dark. The Horse stable has no horses, only a few old carriages. Really hot the day I visited, no fans? Not worth the money, and they charge for parking.

We enjoyed our visit, which was self guided with the help of an interactive audio guide. The story of the history of Casa Loma and how the owner fell on hard times was very touching, and it is nice that his memory lives on through the castle.

It's a great self guided tour. Be sure to get the telephone-like gadget that tells you all about the castle. Go early, because it closes around 4 PM if I remember correctly.

Finding a castle in a big city was a great surprise. Casa Loma is absolutely gorgeous, well worth the money and time. There are four floors plus the turrets, garage/sables, and the garden outside. I would recommend going early in the day or starting at the top and working your way down, especially during the summer because like most buildings... More

this is a very large castle, however, they push so many people through it that it takes some of the charm away from it. some of the rooms were decorated well, put you could tell a lot was missing from it original spender. I found this place to be way over priced, way over crowded, and confusing to go up... More
