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.

Casa Loma is a place of History and yet, with the many events held there it fits well in modern times as well. To be able to tour the vast building and gardens is great.

The history behind the house is very interesting, worth watching the video on the basement. It's a sad story in a way. The house is beautiful. The academy from X-men was filmed here, so are the tunnels from the movie X-men united and the car garage. The also filmed scenes from other movies there as well, It's worth the visit.

If you want to take a look at the past, Casa Loma is a must. There's a mystic aura that transports you to the early 1900s. Not completely wheel chair accessible if you want to go to the tunnels but it is for the most part. They have an elevator where they take you to the different levels.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
