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.

Big castle, lots to see. Wear good walking shoes. There are several floors to go up. The Scottish room if you dare are cast iron winding upward, coming down can make you a little light headed.

I had to opportunity to have a sneak preview of the Legends of Horror Halloween spectacular last night at Casa Loma. ABSOLUTELY amazing. Leveraging the Castle gardens, the tunnels beneath the castle and adjacent building Liberty Entertainment Group has created a new standard for Halloween events. Every classic horror figure and movie is brought to life with actors, theatrically designed... More

WOW! What a great tour of a beautiful historical home....so much to see. ..you must have enough time to savor the beauty of each room and the beautiful furniture. ...must take advantage of the short historical film of the family and how we got to see such a beautiful home. ...

Spent about 3 hours enjoying the Castle and the grounds. Loved the old cars in the Garage. About 100 rooms and built in the early 1900's. One of Toronto's most popular attraction. Go up the spiral tower and take in the views of the surrounds.

This place is sometimes underrated but it's beautiful. It's a majestic castle with lot of history behind. The guided tours are amazing and it comes in many languages. It has really nice garden where you can enjoy some appetizers. I've been there twice and I would recommend to anyone who likes arts, culture and history.

This is a beautiful castle,the history and artifacts not to mention the beautiful detail to this castle is stunning. The only down side is it was raining outside so did not get a chance to tour the gardens, also they had a few areas closed due to preparation for Halloween. The added bonus is that you can get a audio... More

Not quite the castles you'd see in Europe, but still very pretty and lots of history of the early 20th century industrialists. Worth the time and don't miss the movie. It actually helps to put the history of the home in perspective.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
