My kids have visited Casa Loma numerous times. They like free photos with Santa in Dec., tea times, and especially the view from the top tower. In summer and fall, enjoy the foliage in the outdoor gardens and grounds. The underground tunnel opposite the main building's basement pool leads to the opposite side side of the street, near the former... More

Had a visit and was neat to see but they had some of the parts closed due to setting up for a filming of a movie. I wish they had this information available before paying the premium price for admission. What was open was great.

People always ask about what is the big deal about this castle? I ask myself the same thing for years until I finally got a chance to visit it. Now my question has been answered. Its not about the castle but in fact it is the context of what it represents. The interesting story of its owners and how it... More

If you've ever been to a real castle this will be a let down. Not really a castle as much as just a big house. Only a hundred years old, so no real history. Only a few room with the old furnishings. I guess because the owner didn't stay rich, he must have had to sell a lot of possessions.... More

Lots of stairs...very interesting story of the owners. Lots of period furnitures and decor. The bathroom plumbing was well worth the look (state-of-the art at that time). Do walk the tunnel to the stables where there are old cars on display. Well presented. A must-see!

Went here without knowing much about this modern castle, but found the history of it to be compelling. you can easily spend a day between the castle, gardens and out houses.

Not only a dream but history that one man had made! Find out! You will see the back ground of some movies made there and make it to the stables. The restaurant has some good edibles.

This place was absolutely amazing! It reminded me of some of the old castles in Scotland and England and was just full of character. Cost CAD$26 for entrance fee, but it's well worth the price. I actually spent so much time there, that I only had 2hrs left to go to the Royal Ontario Museum that same day (see review).... More

Casa Loma, built by the man who brought electricity to the city and the woman who founded the girl guides of Canada. Looks like a castle. Sparsely furnished but impressive rooms. Go in the tunnel into the stables offsite.Beautiful location in an old neighbourhood. Next door to Spadina house, although smaller may give you a better feel for an upperclass... More

If you haven't gone to Casa Loma it's worth a visit. Check out the underground tunnel between buildings.
