In 1911,...

Canada's majestic castle and Toronto’s premier historic attraction.

In 1911, Sir Henry Pellatt engaged noted architect

E.J. Lennox to help him realize a lifelong dream,the

creation of an Edwardian castle on the top of a hill

overlooking Toronto. It took 300 men nearly three

years to complete the nearly to 200,000 square foot

castle at a cost $3,500,000 (at the time). Situated on

5 acres, Casa Loma was the largest private residence in

Canada. Sir Henry Pellatt with his wife Lady Mary enjoyed

Casa Loma for less than ten years before financial

misfortune forced him to abandon his home.

The tour of the castle is self-guided. Visitors can

experience the castle at their leisure with the aid of

multimedia audio guides.

Stunning castle on top of the hill over looking the skyline of the city. Much to see in this world class venue from well maintained furnished rooms, Queens Own Rifle exhibit, beautiful gardens, 900 ft tunnel to stables with antique 1910 Maxwell cars. A must see in Toronto!!!

Casa Loma was the perfect venue to enjoy high tea which was served in three separate rooms. The conservatory was simply enchanting with its fountain, the stained glass ceiling dome and the live music (harpist and violinist). Loved the ambiance but not as much the food which was average quality although well presented.

Every Monday in the summer Casa Loma presents Soul in the City with Sean Jones. If you are into soul music this event is a must see. It's intimate, its sexy and its just all around good vibes. Take a date, take your fam, take business partners, just go.

I really enjoyed doing the self guided tour. It would have been nice to have had a little more direction on which way to go first. The place is huge with a number of great little secret staircases. There were a few rooms blocked off and I never did see any sign of a kitchen which was a bit disappointing.... More

What a beautiful castle. We really enjoyed our stroll through Casa Loma. It was very cold the day we went so we didn't get to enjoy the gardens. I would love to go back in spring or summer for that.

Casa Loma is an estonishing place on a hill in Toront. You have there an excellent view on the whole city. I am from Germany and I felt a bit like home, because of the fact that we in Germany are so connected to the Middle Age. This chateau made me think like being home. I was super interesting there...

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.
