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.

The castle was a great way to spend some time in Toronto. The headphones were a wonderful way to understand the history.

Casa Loma is beautiful and a must visit when in Toronto. The buildings and grounds are incredible and the house's history is interesting as well. Cafe in the basement isn't big on ambiance, but the food is ok and not too expensive.

A night of great music, story telling and food. Sean Jones put on a wonderful concert along with a 7 piece big band of all original music. Through out the night he told some great stories of his life and how he got into music. The performance was sponsored by Liberty Group Entertainment and they truly know how to put... More

What better way to enjoy Toronto than to visit a Castle. A center for entertainment, foodies and the arts. Historic in its origins this is a place where you can enjoy a concert or just walk about.

This was one of my favorite places to visit in Toronto. At CSD 25 I thought it was a bit expensive at first. But I didn't mind paying that to maintain a nice place like this. First up the location is great. Going up the baldwin steps, you come upon the magnificent facade of this castle, which by itself is... More

If you like history it's definitely a place to go. Plan on spending half of a day there, there is a lot to see and it's a gorgeous venue!

The casa Loma is a historical place. I was exposed to some historical lesson while in the castle. I saw first hand in close some ancient and historical things that amazed me. It is a good place for people who has great interest in learning the culture and history of Toronto to a certain degree. It is a nice place... More

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.
