This is somewhere a bit different in Toronto. Costs $24 CAD to get in without discounts. There are some very interesting rooms which you are free to wander around. A listening device is provided for commentary. Very busy at times and some places get quite congested. Worth looking around though.

I took my mom here last year. She is fascinated with castles and historic places so I thought this would be a great choice and it did not disappoint. She loved everything about it. Its on a hill with a great view of the city, the gardens are well kept and everything inside is just out of this world, almost... More

Beautiful, interesting, historic, quiet, amazing gardens and views. The equivalent of an English stately home. Went there for a couple of hours and ended up there for nearer four hours!!! Lots to see and look at. Good audio guides provided. Such a lovely 'castle'. Check out the different movies that have been filmed there - so many!!!

The well-maintained mansion has nicely appointed rooms and an interesting history including being used as a location in a number of major films as illustrated on posters in the basement near the cafe. The views of the city from the terrace are lovely.

This is a well preserved Villa transformed in a museum. Authentically and well recreated pieces of art as well as decorated rooms make this an enjoyable stop. There is also a park to walk through. Lovely and recommended.

This 98 room castle is so beautiful. Though some rooms are locked you will have access to about 60 to 75 percent of the castle all of which will thoroughly amaze you at how luxurious and advanced the builders were in that time. You'll feel like you stepped back to the past. If you see any of the five attractions... More

We really enjoyed this old mansion. It's fun to see the well preserved historic rooms. Don't miss taking the tunnel to the stables and potting shed. You can also climb even more stairs to visit the towers.

A trip to Casa Loma has become a Christmas tradition for us. The grounds and the decor is just beautiful all year round - but especially at Christmas time. There is usually a show/play every year as well as other events planned for children at the Castle during the Christmas season so check their website events calender.

Casa Loma Toronto, beautiful old house of the city's famous philanthropist and military commander, whom lost it all when his fortunes took a turn for the worse at the turn of the century. Worth a visit.

If you like history this is like taking a step back in time. A castle you get to explore as well as some of the grounds. Check out the attic where you can see where spies hid during the war trying to decode messages. If you're going on a weekend it may be busy with weddings or other events. During... More

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.
