I haven't been there since I was a kid and on a recent visit, I was astounded at how much bigger it seemed. The underground tunnel is fun. The cars in the stables are great. There are some many beautiful rooms. You can get an audio tour and see some videos on the original owner. Pretty cool stuff. Tip: Plan... More

Thank you so much for commenting, so glad to hear you enjoyed your time at Casa Loma. Aren't the antique cars amazing!? We are currently in the process of installing our Winter Wonderland light installation. Come back soon to see beautiful lit up trees and woodland creatures throughout the gardens! More

This was an interesting experience and it gave a good insight to the way Toronto was early in the 20th century. The English influence was very prominent. You get a great view of the city from out on the patio. I would suggest obtaining your free audio guide when you first arrive as it will give you a much better... More

I really enjoyed this visit. You are free to walk around the entire castle (accept for a few office). The place is quite big. You can even walk up a few levels of stairs and go right to the top. You are also free to walk around the beautiful gardens. Bring a lunch to enjoy. We unexpectedly stayed the whole... More

Andrea, thank you so much for posting your comment! Next time you're visiting be sure to check out our Liberty Cafe located on the lower level. As outside food and drink is not permitted, this is a fantastic place to grab a bite to eat. We have also recently introduced all day breakfast! More

We had an enjoyable evening comprising first an interesting walk through the castle and its exhibitions of furniture, and household items from the late 19th and early 20th century, then a dinner a la carte of excellent value in the wintergarten/orangerie of the castle and finally a concert with a good calssical orchestra plus singing in the library of the...

This castle is beautifully done and tells a fascinating story. As others have suggested, go pick up your free audio guide downstairs in the gift shop before starting your tour. You will learn so much that will add to the story of the family that lived there. The woodwork in the house is ornate and gorgeous. The antiques are a... More

Allow plenty of time. Two and a half hours was not enough for us. Also make sure to pick up an audio guide for each person. Very beautiful, opulent. Would have like to see more of the staff quarters and the kitchen areas. Only one staff bedroom room was open. They called it a maids bedroom but we felt it... More

We had almost three hours to explore the place, and it wasn't even enough time! The buildings and grounds are expansive and grand. At first, I was disappointed in the limited number of areas available for touring; but who knows how long it would have taken to go through if all the rooms were open. I loved seeing the details...

This guy had too much money, As you enter the property you can see the epic architecture. Make sure you start the tour buy going to basement to get your free audio. Amazing furniture, wonderful artwork and lots of dead animals on walls and floors as decorations. If you liked to be creeped out, make sure you go to the... More
