Beautiful castle with lots of rooms to see. They also have dancing lessons for those interested in ballroom dancing. It is also fun to stand around and watch the dancers learn. The castle is very popular for weddings and we say 2 going on while we were there. The castle sits on a hill with a great view of Toronto.... More

My last visit to Casa Loma was more than 2 decades ago wearing my prom dress for a photo shoot (ANTM was not invented then) The current visit was made in August 2015 on a rainy morning. I did not pay to go in but was quite surprised it still draws quite a lot of first time tourists.

Interesting place to visit though I thought the entrance fee was a bit steep. Some rooms are truly beautiful, others border on really bad taste. I especially enjoyed the bathroom that was the height of technology at the moment of construction. The whole place reminded me a bit of old horror movies and books.

It's not as grand as Herst Castle in California, but it's still worth a visit. Too many people though even at 5 pm. Not enough workers inside.

Castle is a stunning structure constantly under refurbishment/renovation. However, unbelievable tale of lost fortune. Check out the master shower, an early 1900's plumbing marvel. Also see video in former swimming pool auditorium which is a bit dank. Also see posters of many movies filmed on location.

This is the first time in over 50 reviews that I have had to give a rating like this. I purchased tickets online for Symphony in the Gardens. BIG mistake! The event was oversold and very poorly managed. Customer service was VERY deficient. Having arrived one hour early with printed tickets I was told that I would still have to... More

Casa Loma was an amazing place to go and see on my honeymoon with my wife. The castle was incredibly romantic and the access to the building was incredible. It was truly like taking a trip back through time. The audio tour was informative and the employees working in the castle were very knowledgeable.

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.
