Casa Loma is an architectural beauty elevated 'On The Hill' overlooking the City of Toronto. It was built by Sir Henry Pellatt, took 3 years to build, cost 3.5 million dollars and was finally opened in 1937. Today it is one of the 10 Top Tourist Attractions and Hospitality Venues in the City and a pride of Toronto. If you... More

We recently went to Canada for a week-long vacation. We purchased The Toronto City Pass so that we could enjoy several area attractions, at a discounted price. We went to Casa Loma (via the double-decker tour bus) on a warm July day. The castle is magnificent, as well as the gardens. We took several of the secret passage ways and... More

Our daughter loves Princess Everything and Anything! (She is 6) So we knew she would love this place. We love history so it was perfect for everyone. No major complaints. It was beautiful and we had almost 3 hours and that seemed to be enough time for us. We only bought some Gelato! YUMMY! I highly recommend Casa Loma! Magical... More

We enjoyed our visit - the house is definitely unique. While, the style to my mind is not the indication of the best taste of the creator, the castle is still worth of visiting. The garden is marvelous and the view of Toronto is breathtaking. If you have kids, they will most likely enjoy secret passages and climbing the stairs... More

I wish I lived here. Lol. Gorgeous castle and grounds. Very beautiful. I loved the underground tunnel. Luxurious bedrooms. I love the old style furnishings and decor. The gardens were very nice. Great history. You can also buy food there and of course washrooms and a gift shop.

I was pretty disappointed with this attraction, but I should preface that with the fact that I am from North Carolina and once you see the Biltmore Estate - this really pales in comparison. Looks cool from the outside, but once inside - pretty boring. Not many rooms preserved and set up as they would have been - there are... More

It's a nice visit. Much longer than what we expected. It is also very easy to get to by subway and a short walk.

An amazing home that was built for 3 people..the building is amazing with lots of detail about the history of the items on display. We both really enjoyed the trip out to Casa Loma and enjoying the location on what was... More

Both the adults and teens in our party loved this stop! Great history, beautiful architecture and interior design were only the beginning. The grounds and gardens are stunning. We had fun wandering the tunnel and climbing all the way to the top of the Scottish tower. The stables were my personal favorite. This is must if you are ever in... More

An important part of Toronto's history. The home is a wonderful place to visit with exceptionally helpful staff. Leave enough time to explore the many rooms and exhibits. Pay particular attention to some of the oddities like telephones in bathrooms that wer installed when there were few telephones in the entire city. A home way ahead of its time.
