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.

Went for the day with a client and spent the whole day looking around. The view from the towers are very nice and just so much to see and pleasing to look at! If you have your city pass you can avoid the line up if you have your booklet with you. Good way to spend the day!

I enjoyed my visit! I love old buildings & this was something special. A little disappointed in the lack of furniture in some rooms, but I enjoyed the abandoned feel to it. Beautiful view of the city from the towers. The underground tunnels were somewhat creepy and that add to my excitement. Secret passages were cool, and I found all... More

If you like castles and learning about history then this is the place for you. I enjoyed my time at Casa Loma and I probably would return in the future. There was a lot to view at and there were recorded audio guides that you could ask for and it would tell you the history of the room or items.... More

Admit I am a Toronto local - I purchased 2 tickets to use for the Symphony in the Park event last year - they are general admittance tickets. I wanted to use them tonight only to find they expire after a year and I'm no longer allowed entry ( a week out of date!) - a complete waste of nearly... More

We spent around 4hours here. The ticket price of $25 per adult is good value as there is so much to see and experience. The audio guide is included in your ticket price. However, we did have to wait for some to be returned as they ran out. The grounds are very big..I feel that they need to staff it... More

Lots of stairs and a popular attraction but worth it, as there's lots to see and it is a very beautiful place, inside and out.

We like to do house tours such as this on vacations, and Casa Loma stacks up as pretty good, not great. I liked the pacing of the audio tour (self guided) but felt like the information often came up short in terms of historical context or content (particularly as a biography of the owner). The grounds are beautiful, and I... More

You need to go downstairs to collect your 'free' audio guide. The presentation is clear and gives pictures to illustrate what you are looking at in more detail. The history of this 'palace' is extra ordinary and make this a must see. It wasn't very crowded in the morning and going up into two towers gave us wonderful views. Do... More

We visited mid-day and the wait to get tickets was about 20 minutes. Easy to walk around and listen to the recorded tour at your own pace. Skip the tunnel - it's just dark and damp ...

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.
