I wanted to go there and my husband was convinced only after the visit. There are many people going in and out, it is crowded but you find your way and you can enjoy this great place even when it is loaded. It is very good organized, the Audio Guide is easy to understand (many languages are available, not only... More

I was in a Garden Concert of Clasic Music I visited this memorable building of one of the most rich person in Toronto. I paid for the concert and I saw the building indoor. Interesting and historic for people who wants to know a little more of this attraction in Toronto.

A very clean and nicely organized attraction, people host weddings here. Admission is cheaper than most Toronto attractions and you can spend a few hours here. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle. Bottled water is $3. There is no in-out admission, once you leave you are out for the day. I would not take little (under 5) kids... More

Our second visit in 2 years. Very interesting story about the original owner and his financial demise in later years. Good information regarding Royal connections and of course the Armed Forces. Excellent gardens and of course the many beautiful rooms

Casa Loma was the first place we visited in Toronto, as it's the first stop on the city sightseeing bus. It's just a short walk from the bus stop, at the top of the hill of course! The building and the gardens are lovely, and there is a lot to see in the house itself. We were expecting something along... More

**Tips and Suggestion Summary at Bottom** Casa Loma is definitely worth a visit for those who are interested in history or architecture. Anyone without these interests may have trouble enjoying themselves on a hot day or because of the lack of direction around the house. You will need at least three hours to visit the whole house. A friend and... More

Exploring the castle was fantastic. Recorders that are provided give you information of each area in the castle. There were things I would have missed without it, so definitely take the time to listen. Loved the history of the place. In July, you could upgrade your ticket for and additional $10 and get an incredible lunch in the gardens. It... More

Had a nice time touring the Casa. A lot to see. Beautiful gardens. Only criticism is that on a hot day, the third floor in particular, can be stifling. It's an old castle, no AC (they have units in rooms, but they are overwhelmed by heat and crowds). So if you are sensitive to heat and being stifled a bit,... More

We went to the castle to see Sean Jones perform presented by Liberty Entertainment. First off the entry fee includes touring the castle and the concert. We didn't know much about Sean Jones but wanted to enjoy an outdoor concert......best concert we have seen in a very long time. Guest appearances by Julie Black, Johnny Reid and 2 others who...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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 after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
