Visited this lovely "castle" and enjoyed a nice walk in the wonderful gardens before going on a tour of the castle itself . The attraction was busy but well organised . There was an orchestra and opera singers practicing in the library which really added to the visit. The walk up the spiral stairs to the tower is certainly worth... More

I loved this house...his quiet location and architecture. I've appreciate that has been possible to visit it in almost entirely . No problem to take photos. Very interesting the tunnel...big contrast between richness and poorness.

Casa Loma may not have been home to the royal family but it was constructed with all the elements and design of a European Castle. You can obtain an audio guide of the castle for no additional cost. Most of the main rooms are fully decorated with period pieces. There is also a small military museum in the top floor.... More

Upon entering the gate walking around the beautiful gardens, from the first point of contact the workers there were so pleasant and helpful. The self guided recording tour inside of the castle was perfect. Would definitely recommend for the anyone to view. Experience was awesome

Symphony in the Gardens, what a wonderful event! We saw the Edith Piaf tribute last Wednesday. The gardens are stunning. The way they had it all set up was elegant, with a solarium tent area, outdoor bar and fabulous lighting, which pulled the whole ambiance together. The castle was the perfect backdrop, very romantic. The music was fantastic, we could... More

We decided not to go inside due to limited time. The grounds were nice and we were able to get a good view of the castle after ascending the staircase. It was one of the stops on our city tour and we wanted to see this fabulous place in person.

We decided to go to Casa Loma at the last minute for Mother's day and we were pleased with the experience. I suggest you get the guide-device available at the souvenir shop (it was free when we went) and take your time listening to it while visiting the castle, you will learn a lot if interesting things about the history...

We enjoyed this tour because of the rich history it provides. The owner went from having it all to losing everything except a few personal items. It also shows how Toronto was in its beginning. We purchased a City Pass, & it was one of the events to see. Well worth the purchase

The exterior of the castle is good, Not very appealing interior. I have seen better castle, exquisite mansions in Rhode Island. USA. Waste of time, money.. Just click picture outside the castle that should be gud enough.. :)
