Interesting self guided audio tour of the former mansion and grounds of Sir Henry Mill Pellatt. If you like architecture and history is a entertaining way to spend a couple of hours.

24$ to see an old house is steep, but this was very special and interesting. It takes a couple of hours to do it justice.

Very informative. Tons of walking required. I spent the morning at Casa Loma and even had lunch there before I moved on to Spadina House. Casa Loma is more new than Spadina House, having said that, it is well maintained. I can see why so many people go there to get married or have their receptions there. You can see... More

Casa Loma is a fabulous castle originally build with no expense spared and later restored with perfection. We spent 4 hours at the site and it was quite educational.

If you enjoy visiting historic homes in England or other European countries, you may enjoy this visit. I first visited when I was a child and was impressed, and since then have been a few more times. I don't know if I am just more worldly; jaded, but it seems like it's not up to it's normal standard. I'd still... More

I spent two hours exploring Casa Loma and honestly could have spent more. The free audio guide is wonderful in explaining the history of the place. I loved the conservatory, the secret passages, the tunnel. Only one if the towers was open for climbing and offered great views of the city. Unfortunately I didn't get much time at all to... More

This is a mansion, which represents how the 1% lived in late 1900s in Toronto. An audio tour that is included in the entry fee brings the history alive. The tunnels in the building will interest the kids. The building towers (if you are brave enough to climb the narrow stairs) and terraces give sweeping views of the city. We... More

The castle is definitely something worth seeing while in Toronto. Casa Loma was bigger than I had anticipated, but i certainly didn't mind checking out every room available. It's interesting to see all of the things from years past (Especially in the bedroom with the tiger skin rug, and all the furniture, weapons, etc). There is a free audio guide... More

If you've ever had nostalgia for the treasured past, this is the place to visit! The world really was a different place when Casa Loma was built, the waning days of Empires, Nobility, & Old Wealth. This castle really gives you an idea of the world back then, the pool room, a tiger rug (prob. killed during a safari when... More
