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.

Waste of money, $25 per person, best to take photos from outside as Casa is soul less. Great story and family but really cost is ridiculous!!

First time visitor: Upon entering, immediately go downstairs to the basement. Look for the booth (next to the cafe) that hands out the audio devices. Get one for each member of your group, and a map as well. Then you're good to go. You can start anywhere you want, basement, main floor or upper floor. For Management: I hope my... More

Really impressed with this place with so much to see. My wife and I spent over three hours marveling at this wonderful castle. A beautiful old building so well kept and the included audio tour really added to the experience. Make sure you travel up into the towers to get a great view of the grounds and downtown Toronto.

When looking for an attraction to visit we were advised by an advisor in a tourist information office that we should avoid Casa Loma miss, ( not worth the time I think her words were ) how wrong she was. The house is stunning, and the history behind the house is enthralling, there were 2 Weddings being held on the... More

Fascinating gothic revival style house packed with artefacts. It was an interesting "castle' that had been lovingly built and maintained

Well what I appeciated most of the house or (casa) was the outlook and position... calm place with little traffic and lots of green around... Casa Loma is particular and has many rooms ,ancient rooms ,as you might expect and a kinda humid underground with posters of some events occurred in Tor., that looks a bit dismal but whatever

Loved the historics of the place and the preserved architecture. Very busy and hot in the summer which made it difficult to read some of the historical information and enjoy it. Maps would be beneficial.

Enjoyed touring the castle. The audio tour, which is included in the price of entry, is very interesting. Going up into the turrets was great fun, but be prepared for a climb up narrow spiral staircases. Well worth the queuing being out of breath for though. We were disappointed that the lower gardens and the tunnels were closed for September... More

If you're a X-men fan you most likely will recognize this spot from the first three movies! It's one of my 10 top picks in Toronto!

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.
