We took the hop on hop off bus tour to get to Casa Loma as it is a good bit out of the centre of Toronto. The self walking tour was great although my husbands audio set went flat after only a couple of uses. The climb up the Scottish Tower was worth it for the views. Lunch in the... More

This "castle" mansion was the place to be invited to in the 1930's. Unfortunately it was all lost during the depression. Luckily it was not torn down but restored to its present day beauty. You can take the subway and then walk a short distance uphill to visit. If you are a AAA member you will receive a discount. I... More

Visited this place in last May and it was really nice. For me this is the number 1 attraction in Toronto. It's even better if the front garden is open for the public.

Breath taking and quite impressive! The audio tour offers a good in depth explanation. The rooms and furnishings are indescribable. The value was well worth the tour. We were able to do a comprehensive tour in under 3 hours w/a group of 9, each going at their own pace.

There was nothing not to dislike in this gorgeous home and greenhouse. It is well cared for, well landscaped, and numerous art treasures. We loved the entire visit.

We enjoyed viewing the castle. We loved seeing the rooms and hearing the history of the castle. It was a beautiful place and worth the money spent to see it.

A stop on the hop on/off bus and inclusion in Toronto City Pass brought us to this Toronto Treasure. A beautiful castle with glorious gardens and wonderful views over Toronto resulted in a fun, interesting couple of hours spent there. We visited on a Tuesday morning in September where we didn't have to battle the crowds. We were finished by... More

I had never heard of this place and it is very impressive. The unfortunate thing is that a lot of the original furniture was auctioned away in the 20's but the decor is still very nice.

Though is sad that the original pieces were auctioned off in the 20's, it is part of our history. That said, we are doing our best to restore the castle with authentic pieces from that time to replicate the original style of furnishings chosen by Sir Henry himself. Many of the items throughout Casa Loma are in fact originals that... More

I didn't want to go here. My friends dragged me and I LOVED IT! It was so beautiful, indoors and outdoors. The grounds and the views outside were phenomenal. The antiques and stories inside were mesmerizing. When I heard that you could host your wedding and reception, and stay in the bridal suite....AWESOME! Definitely a MUST SEE in Toronto.

We took the Spadina subway to Dupont to access this. Then there was quite a walk, all uphill. The castle was very crowded on Saturday, October 4, 2014 with at least two weddings and a bunch of tourists. This place is huge and has lots and lots of steps and tunnels and walking and climbing. If you can make it,... More
