I've been twice. The first time i did not get the audio tour. I reget not getting it the first time. It made the experience even better. The money goes to upkeep so it is like a donation. Well worth it.

Being a first time visitor really left me amazed of everything in and around this Castle, i barely used the audio guide, i just let the Castle relate it's story to myself by what it has, there's always a message in every little thing around and why it is that way. I bet this place must be even more beautiful... More

It was going through minor restoration work on the exterior but that did not affect how majestic this castle looks.

They have a lot of language versions for guide tourists from all around world. It is a peaceful and magnificent castle at the north side of Toronto city.

This is North America's Castle." On the back side of the castle there are a set of several flights of stairs. Many residents use them for running as exercise. We walked up them not realizing we could walk around the side and find the front entrance. Anyway, the house has turn of the century furniture with velvet fabrics and carved... More

We bought the Toronto City Pass and so Casa Loma was one of the attractions included. It is of course not actually a castle but it's still quite beautiful. We were there just after Christmas and it was still decorated with a great variety of Christmas trees in every room, boughs of evergreen, and large red velvet curtains in the... More

Casa Loma is not a real castle but it is certainly an impressive house and plays an important role in the city's architectural history. Unfortunately, due to the bankruptcy of the original owner, Casa Loma's interior was never really completed and virtually all of the furnishings were sold many years ago at auction. (Only a few original pieces remain.) The... More

Went to Casa Loma in July 2014, and spent a fairly enjoyable few hours. The house was well presented, but my experience was marred by the fact that I found the tunnel to the stables very claustrophobic to the extent I wanted to leave the premises as soon as I had gone through the tunnel. Unfortunately there was no-one available... More

Love the tunnels connecting the house to the stables. They put on amazing displays/shows at Christmas. Best time to go! Beautiful history. Love exploring.
